How Benny likes his tea

Sorry if this has been posted before, but it made me smile, so I wanted to share:

I like my tea like I like my men.  Strong, hot and British.   http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

*Thuds at the thought*


Why do I suddenly crave a cuppa?

Re: How Benny likes his tea

Interesting. Despite going through a ceremony to become British we still don't drink tea. We are obviously not British enough yet.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

I am British and don't really drink that much tea. Sometimes I feel ashamed of myself.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

That was a lovely video!  You can just tell Ben cares deeply about his cuppa!! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
  He's put a lot of thought into what he likes and dislikes when it comes to tea. 

Both Dan and I love Earl Grey tea - just with a bit of milk in it (but we are perfectly happy to drink it without). 

Lately, we have been getting a special blend tea from a shop in town where they blend their own.  It's called "On the Waterfront" and has Rooibos, Peppermint and Spearimint leaves, Ginger, Apple and Almond pieces, and Hibicus, Rose and Osmanthus petals in it.  Really, really good. Loose leaf - so we out it in a tea ball.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

I love everything English, but I have to shamely admit I do not like black tea. Earl Grey is the most boring and not good drink I can imagine. I can enjoy the occasional lemon or cinnamon tea, but it might go a year or two between each time I have a cup. 

I'm a coffee drinker.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

I'm pretty much sitting in front of the house then, in the cold...
I always push my tea bags with a spoon. I like the way they "feel" :D Also I'm not very patient.

I love tea. Usually it's PG for breakfast, and then a mixed variety through the day... With black tea, I always add milk. I like it that every british household has got a kettle. Here everybody seems crazy about coffee. Drinking tea is like a bad habit - you cannot stop.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

I'd never have thought of mixing Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchong, even though I like them both!

Re: How Benny likes his tea

Being American I do love coffee, but I also love tea and enjoy both depending on my mood.
Earl Grey is my absolute favorite with Irish Breakfast close behind.

Of course, being from the Southern United States, I adore sweet iced tea and have consumed gallons of it in my life.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
   I actually tried some Earl Grey iced once and it was lovely.

Re: How Benny likes his tea

Of course, I can drink a cup of Earl Grey if I'm given one, to be polite. So if Ben ever offered me a cup of what he considered proper tea, I would love to try it.
