The Mad Girl's Tea Party

bakerstreetbabes:

Beastly Beverages is a UK based tea company that does some fantastic Sherlock blends (which Kafers did some of the art for) and this adorable Sherlock mug, but will be in danger of going out of business without help!

Rude China

Tea cups, mugs, and plates to use for the dinner parties your inlaws aren’t invited to. Or you could use them for those, too, depending on how you feel about your inlaws. Sold on Etsy.

SO I WANNA KNOW WHAT THE FUCKING DEAL IS WITH EARL GREY AND LADY GREY. THEY BOTH HAVE MY NAME ON THEM BUT IT FUCKING CONFUSES ME TO NO END. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS.

fucking--tea:

HELL FUCKING YEAH YOU WANNA KNOW THE FUCKING DEAL WITH ALL THESE GREYS? IT’S ALMOST HISTORICAL

EARL GREY: THE NAME OF AN ORIGINAL BLEND OF CHINESE BLACK TEA SCENTED (/FLAVOURED) WITH BERGAMOT OIL. (NAMED AFTER A BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, EARL GREY. AS IN, BEING AN EARL. STORY GOES THAT HE SAVED A MANDARIN’S LIFE, AND TO THANK HIM, HE BROUGHT TO THE EARL THIS BLEND, BOTH BERGAMOT — WHICH IS A LITTLE CITRUS FRUIT — AND TEA BEING SOURCED FROM CHINA AT THIS POINT. AT THE TIME BERGAMOT WAS MOSTLY USED TO ADD AROMA TO SNUFF, SO IT WAS A FASHIONABLE ADDITION.)

LADY GREY: THE OFFICIAL TWININGS COUNTERPART BLEND OF EARL GREY, REFERRING TO HIS WIFE, THE LADY GREY. NOT ONLY DOES IT HAVE BERGAMOT IN IT; IT ALSO INCLUDES ORANGE AND LEMON PEEL, WHICH ADD TO THE CITRUS FLAVOUR.

HOWEVER, BECAUSE TWININGS HAVE LADY GREY COPYRIGHTED, YOU’LL FIND NO END OF OFFSHOOTS AND SPIN-OFFS, WITH VARIOUS OTHER CITRUS MIXES. BARONESS GREY, COUNTESS GREY, MISTRESS GREY…

YOU COULD SAY IT’S A BIT OF A

GREY AREA

they should make red berry tea in tampon shaped teabags so it looks like you’re infusing your hot water with period blood

This, ladies and gentlemen is an example of a bad idea.

You may think that British stereotypes are incorrect, but in the back of our science GCSE revision guides, there’s a guide to making the perfect cup of tea.

Dear everyone else in Britain: When was this. Is this still around? Because if so I’m never going to be able to take a conversation about the education system seriously ever again. 

I did my GCSEs last year and I can confirm that this was in the back of all of my Science revision guides

In Ireland, you go to someone’s house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you’re really just fine. She asks if you’re sure. You say of course you’re sure, really, you don’t need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don’t need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn’t mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it’s no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don’t get any damned tea.

I liked the Irish way better.
