We have quite a lot of tea in our house. I recently had a re-arrange of the coffee and tea cupboard and decided that the most efficient way to order the tea was by continent.

Batman generally likes Indian teas, and I prefer Chinese. But we meet in the middle over quite a few, mainly Rose Pouchong and Gunpowder (wait, that’s not meeting in the middle, that’s him coming to my side…).

We also had to buy builder’s tea for those hapless guests who, when replying to offers of tea in the affirmative, couldn’t quite cope with the variety and whimpered ‘Do you have…. just tea?’.
