An Important Invention of the Twentieth Century
A provocative title you may think;an important invention of the twentieth century.You may wonder is he talking about penicillin,the cantilever brassiere or nuclear fission?
No,the humble tea bag!
As a boy I always enjoyed the taste of tea,but my dear old mum,God rest her,used loose tea without a tea strainer so I usually ended up with a mouthful of tea leaves,not nice!
Then miraculously the tea bag arrived on the scene in the nineteen sixties and I've never looked back.
An old remedy in England for whatever ails you is a nice cup of tea.
Mr Chamberlain the Germans are about to invade!Have a nice cup of tea sir,you'll feel much better.
You are about to be summarily executed by firing squad,never mind,have a nice cup of tea first,there that wasn't so bad was it?
