My UK Bro Simon sent me an "English box" ( Catherine Wheels, Kendal Mint cake, Uncle Joe's mint balls, Henry Goode's soft eating liquorice) lately as a pre Xmas gift... And there was that beautiful mug in it "Keep calm and drink some tea" and I thought... Is there any other nation in the whole wild wide world which is associated in our imagination with a drink as England with the tea? No, I don't think. So here's my homage to British legendary passion for tea! "Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities... will always be the favourite beverage of the intellectual". Thomas de Quincey (1785-1859) in the "Recipes for an English tea" book. ;) Thanx a lot, Si. ;)
