What the hell is this shit?
YES, Tea is shit. We don’t examine this legendary drink enough in England. We just putter along, thinking tea is good; but it’s not good. It’s a just a lukewarm mug of leaf water, presented as a cure-all for life’s ills.
“Nice cup of tea,” people say, when you’ve watched a vivid car accident or been given a terminal diagnosis, or gone for a walk and it’s started raining. Whether the mafia has kidnapped you and made you kill a man with a gun to win your freedom or if you’ve done quite badly in an exam, someone will say: “Let me get you a nice cup of tea.”
