British actor Ben Miller, who is the voice of the PG Tips monkey, recently revealed that he prefers Typhoo Tea. In an interview with the show Radio Times, he said, “I fear I am a completely stereotypical Brit abroad” … “Every time I go away my suitcase is packed with Typhoo Tea and English mustard.” Then, he quickly corrected himself adding, “”Oh, I meant PG Tips! I will get in a lot of trouble for that!”

This post actually has nothing to do with tea. If you need some romantic text to add to valentine day card, you can use the below. This is Sonnet 18 from William Shakespeare.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Of course, you should make your loved one a nice cup of tea today.

Even though its February and cold outside, warmer weather is right around the corner. To help you make it through the last few weeks of cold, here is a unique iced tea recipe. This Spiced Iced Green Tea recipe is courtesy of Dilmah Tea.
Dilmah Green Tea
3-4 green cardamom pods bruised using a mortar and pestle
Make a pot of Dilmah Green Tea. Add sliced fresh turmeric and bruised cardamom pods. Let it steep for at least an hour (better if left overnight). When the tea is cooled, tip into a glass jug. Add slices of lemon, orange, mandarin and leave to steep again before serving. Add ice to serve. If you wanted you could add sugar or frost the glasses with sugar and juice.
