Jan, what is red rose tea, is that the brand of tea or is that what the tea is?? Now that is interesting already ha ha ha ha ha

 

Denise Starbucks is an international concern isn't it? In fact hasn't Paul McCartney just released his latest album through Starbucks?? Unfortunately for the 64 year-old, Starbucks' 533 UK stores do not provide sales data to the Official Charts Company - so any CD's purchased there will not count to the album's chart position. Oooooooops Sir Paul seems his luck just isn't in today, it was reported that Heather wants to give Sir Paul a birthday present and wish?????

 

 

 

I have a habit of trying to type as fast as i CAN AND OFTEN HIT THE WRONG KEYS and what is worse I have to type with my head down and when I look up I note that I have once again hit the CAPS lock as you can see, it gets on my nerves, have you ever done that???????

 

Our Favourite cup of tea is called "fair trades gold premium" all to do with paying tea growers a fair price for their tea. Other tea we like includes, P.G tips, and Typhoo and I quite like Lippmann's although sadly for Kevin he is not related to the company owners, or is he?? Tea here in the UK is always served hot, boiling water usually poured over a tea bag in a cup or if like me you like the old fashioned tea pot. Traditionally when made in the pot, loose tea leaves (crushed as in the tea bag) are put into the pot usually one tea spoon of tea leaves for every person you are serving and one for the pot. The tea is then left to what we call brew and then poured using a tea strainer into the cup. It is said somewhere that you should never put your milk in first and that you should always pour the tea first and add the milk or cream second. Something to do with the tannins in the tea, but I can't remember what it is. Maybe some one else will know the answer to that one. :signs007[1]:

Is hot chocolate allowed here? I've never acquired a taste for coffee except occasional coffee ice cream. Tea upsets my stomach unless it's herbal and those aren't all that terrific. But hot chocolate with a bit of peppermint and a squirt of whipped cream on top? Yummy. I only indulge during the winter months though so what shall I have today? Ah yes, my glass of water. Yippee. Long day at work and I'm fried. 'Night all.

Yum! This morning is a bit cool outside and overcast (what else should I expect in the NW?) Hot chocolate sounds good right now. But I should be a good girl and have breakfast first. Wanted to sleep in since it's my day off but woke up at 5:45 as usual. Oh well. Got a lot done already. Now just dropping in to say hi. HI!!

I'll join you in the hot chocolate (or cocoa to you Brits), so long as it has marshmallows in it :)!! Red Rose tea, Gordon, is the "tea that dares to be known by good taste alone" LOL. It has been around in Canada for more than 6 or 7 decades and tends to advertise by showing a traditional English family drinking it and asking if they can get some there, only to be told, "only in Canada". The actors in the commercials invariably respond "What a pity!" in a strong English accent.

 

If you send me your address, I will send you a teadbag or two to try. I like it better than any others too, including Earl Grey and some of the other popular ones.

Jan,

 

I hate Earl Grey, or any perfumed tea and have always wondered how on earth people can say they like it, would you drink perfume, I wouldn't.

 

We have so may types of tea available here, because as you know we Brits never work without our tea breaks, we have traditional teas, China tea, Indian tea, Dutch tea and it goes on and on. Did you know it was the Dutch who where the first people in the Western world to drink tea as we know tea.

 

This might surprise you though, there is a difference between cocoa and chocolate, I much prefer cocoa myself, so now you know.

 

Here is some inside information for you "Gypsy Gold" are horses; it is how a Gypsies wealth was originally measured. I suppose today although Gypsies still keep horses and trade in horses their wealth will be somewhat measured by the size of their pockets. And of course as we should all know Starbucks is or I think it is a chain of posh cafes or eateries across the world who are now involved in record publishing, but alas they have no tie with any of the formal charts so none of the sales from these places are counted towards the top 100 album listings.

 

Just had the most lovely cuppa tea with my digestive biscuit. God bless all. :signs007[1]:
