Tea

The perfect cuppa

is best drunk when it’s at the

right temperature.

N.B. That temperature may be different for each person, but the perfection remains the same.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. This is so true. As a kid my mother always sent me to Cowardines on Whiteladies Road near Clifton down station. The order was a pound of Ceylon tips mixed with a quarter pound of Ceylon dust. The ritual for brewing the tea was thorough, warm the pot etc. But drinking the perfect cuppa on a Sunday afternoon was bliss.
    Your post yesterday and today’s post make me think of those lines ” Lo stands the church clock at ten to three and is there honey still for tea?

      1. I don’t recall that Cowardines. There used to be a pub close by, I think it was called The Coronation tap. I remember it was on the left hand side of a dead-end street. BTW, are the Cowardines storesw still in business?
