A good old cuppa

Forget your Starbucks and your filtered coffee, nothing beats a good old cuppa 'Rosey Lee', that's tea to you and me. Every problem in the modern day world can can be solved with a simple cup of tea, many a time will you hear in times of trouble or hardship "stick the kettle on"...

First brought back to Blighty by the East India Company, by 1750 tea was Britain's national drink. Now no home in Britain would be without their tea leaves.
