Many, many years ago, I had my first true encounter with the refreshing, hydrating glory of the “cuppa”. I won’t pretend to remember exactly when it was, although I suspect it was in my early teens, and I may have been spending too much time with my friend (and intrepid international explorer) Jon.
It happened something like this: Jon: Fancy a cup of tea? Me: Actually, yes I do. [5 minutes pass, then, after taking the first sip] Me: Ahh… That’s better!
