Trying to get a nice cup of tea...

Just found this very funny article about trying to get a nice cup of tea in America, written by Stuart Payne (who created the NiceCupofTeaandaSitDown website and who co-authored the book of the same name)!

The same problems happen in Switzerland: you're lucky to get an English Breakfast teabag, the water is never boiling, and when you ask for milk, you get cream. Ah well, I discovered today that the
(english) Orell Fuessli bookshop in Bahnhofstrasse has started stocking English delicacies, amongst them HP sauce, marmite and PG Tip Pyramid teabags - I'm saved :-)
