Bag of bags

A bag of Yorkshire tea bags

A bag of Yorkshire tea bags

We’re nearing the end of this mammoth bag of tea bags which has lasted us a couple of years.

A new bag is on its way in the company of other British foods; ‘just reached Milan’ Clive informed me today.

Italian tea bags aren’t a patch on English ones. They’re far too weak and make a cup which Clive describes as ‘dear Aunt Jane’.

Angela, our cleaning lady, told me that she often puts her nose inside the bag of tea bags to inhale the delicious aroma.

    Nothing like a strong mug of tea!

      Yes, quite!

      My half French half American grandmother, who used to drink tea black and ‘the hotter the better'(we could never understand how she didn’t scald her mouth) would reject it as ‘pipi de chat’ (cat’s pee) if it was weak, saying that the opposite was ‘pipi de lion’!
