Thirty years ago, I was in England [sadly, I haven’t been back since]. I drank tea the whole time I spent there, and most of the people I stayed with, seemed to use the same brand. I so liked tea, so I bought one box of that brand, thinking I’d switch from coffee altogether. That didn’t happen … I finished the box I’d bought and that was it.
Never forgot that tea, though … I know it was probably a psychological thing — I was travelling, having fun … the whole atmosphere made me take a special liking to that.
The other day, when walking through the City Market here … in one of the little kiosks that carry ‘foreign foods’ … what do I see, if not PG tips! Immediately purchased this box, which was rather expensive, and I’m having a cup right now. It’s still good, but I think I’d glorified it quite a bit over the years! 🙂
