T Leave or T Leaf It – That Is The Question!
How many of you drink Tea and how many drink coffee and how many drink both?
If you do drink Tea, do you do so by ‘tea bag or do you drink via the old fashioned method of tea leaves and tea strainer? How many of you are even familiar with the method of tea leaves and strainer?
Today Suze and l whilst at our coffee morning, we over heard the conversation between two ladies in their 60’s talking to the lady at the counter – they were requesting tea leaves over tea bags and they were met with the answer of ‘”No one drinks tea leaves any more, it’s all tea bags!”
Their response was “Oh l say how extraordinary [no lie], that’s all we drink when we are at home! The Amercans and the Australians we have for tea love it!”
The counter lady just looked at them agog, and asked what the Americans and the Australians had to do with anything – considering they didn’t know a tea bag from a golf bag?!”
The two ladies walked away in a huff and the lady at the counter muttered to herself and got on with what she had been doing … Suze and l giggled to each other, however – it did make me think about T Leaves and the T Leaf.
I remember the days of tea leaves long before tea bags were a thing – messy bloody things – even with a tea strainer – but do people drink tea with a tea bag or tea leaves? If so which is preferred?
