Working from home. Constantly drinking tea. Literally buckets of the stuff.

Literally? Out of a bucket? JesusÖ

Yip, a big ceramic bucket.

Burn the lip off you those yolks.

4 or 5 cups for me in a day. All made in the cup nowadays except when visitors. Kids are well on board with the ceremony of it. Milk and sugar to taste. Kettle only way to go and the first part of the ceremony. Couldnít have one of those hot water taps about the place. Lockdown and wfh saw the introduction of the 400 bags sack instead of the 80ís. A great job!

Couldnít agree more
Them hot water taps are never hot enough to make a good drop of tay
You need the kettle boiled , the pot warmed , kettle boiled again and away you go

Anyone offering you a cup of tay using one of them hot water tap yokes is not a true connoisseur of tay
They would lack of the necessary levels of sophistication and taste that us true tay appreciators have

We have the big hot water taps at work and they're a great job no complaints about them at all!

I'm with The Subbie on this one, water needs to be boiling and TBH we'd one of those hot water taps at work and the water wasn't boiling out of it, so the kettle had to be returned post haste.

Help me out here. This is a genuine question. But what the hell is the big attraction to tea?

As far as I'm concerned it looks awful, tastes awful, smells awful, and burns your tongue so it hurts for days afterwards. So why do so many Irish people worship the stuff? Why do they drink it like water?

I was at my auntie's a few months ago and of course I went through the usual ritual of explaining that no, I really, honestly don't want any tea. Yes, water's fine. She said "that sounds awful that, a glass of cold water." Later when she topped me up, she topped me up with hot water from the kettle. I had to pour it down the sink and pour me a cold glass of water. She could not believe the evidence in front of her eyes that this, the most ordinary thing in the world, was all I wanted to drink.

When I'm thirsty I just pour a glass of water and drink it. Job done in a few seconds. When my dad gets thirsty he seems to go through this big elaborate ritual involving a kettle, a tea bag, milk, a teaspoon, and having to sit down for five minutes to drink the stuff. Even on a hot day.

I just don't get it. What is it about this beverage that people find so alluring?

If employment law did not forbid it, my first question when interviewing a candidate for a job would be "Tea or Coffee". If the answer was Coffee a security guard would enter and drag the heathen out and throw him out the front door. If he said Tea, we'd make a cup of tea and discuss his remuneration requirements.

Controversial - but Iíve been drinking decaf tea for the past 2.5 years (two pregnancies and breastfeeding). I donít mind it at all but depends on the brand.
Decaf coffee is nicer though.

Moved to decaf and haven't noticed a big difference - even got me ma on it!

It's great for preventing any reflux problems too.
