Despite having spent most of my working life in Christian ministry I have never been a "More tea, Vicar". I loathe the stuff. I used to tell my parishioners that I drink my coffee naked, which is not a pretty thought until you realise that it's the coffee which is naked i.e. black, no sugar.
Anyway, I digress. Tea. I never drink it but I am an Englishwoman so it's always in the house. Except when I forget to buy any. Because I need so little I don't buy any until just before I run out and then I buy a small pack of teabags. This is a dangerous policy as sometimes I do run out and I find inability to offer tea to a guest to be embarrassing.
However, most hotels have a hospitality tray in the bedrooms and there are always teabags and sachets of instant coffee. I therefore remove a few teabags each time I am away from home and keep these for "emergencies".
Yesterday I used the last regular teabag for a friend. This is now an emergency as I don't want to spend any of my precious £19.56 on something I don't like. So I searched out these. Saved!
