As the King told the Queen and the the Queen told the Dairy Maid, “Nobody, my Dear, would call me a fussy man, but I do like a little bit of butter on my…” Actually I don’t have butter on my bread, but I am missing my afternoon cup of Whitard’s Strawberry Tea!
Whittards was one of the first casualties of the recession. Whoever bought them out has been rationalising and coming up with new, bright ideas. One of them was to scrap Strawberry Flavoured Tea and replace it with Strawberry and Orange.
This is the most disgusting brew you could ever imagine. Remember all those revolting medicines you were made to take as a child? Most particularly, Amoxycillin Syrup? They said it tasted nice for kids – all oranges and strawberries? They were liars!
Well that’s what Orange and strawberry tea tastes of. Revolting children’s medicines. Just smelling it makes me gag!
I used to mix strawberry tea with Lapsang Suchong for my afternoon tea. It was the most thirst-quenching tea you can imagine. Please – Please – Please bring it back!
