You lot are looking very refined... Sitting listening to classical music and talking about cars.... I haven't heard an explosion for over an hour... Ye gads, someone's drugged the tea, it's the only  explanation...

No, it's the vast amount of opiates in the hookah.

Well, that and the fact there's a lack of explosives available at present.  Apparently the more vocal student protesters have bought up the country's entire supply for the next six months.

*wanders in with typical dazed look and greyish complexion*

Dear sirs, *why* was I left standing in the garden for...*checks chronometer*...the better part of six months?  I sure hope there's some food in here, I'm starving again.

Music?  What a pleasant addition.  Why didn't we think of that before?  It might have kept our various alien invasions and...

*spots opium*

...ahem...assuming there really were all those invasions, and that I'm not just remembering some drunken fisticuffs a bit funny...in any event, pleasant music might have kept them down to a minimum.

I'll have a sixteen ounce steak and a port, please.  Right after I get out of the washroom...six months!...erm, I might be awhile...

I'm more intrigued as to why the world is spinning over on end.  It is making me quite dizzy.

Wanders in and trips over Stimer, laying on the floor and gibbering something about the carpet growing.

Who left that there?

Evening, chaps.

Excellent choice, Sir!  May I suggest the ASDA's own-brand Earal Grey?  By far the finest, most subtle and drinkable blend I've yet to find.

I'm sorry, is there particular reason why my chair is now on its side and I am decanted onto the floor?

I think my chair fell against you when my legs decided to cultivate a mind of their own. 

No need for a doctor- I'm quite relieved to announce I'm back to 'normal', wherever/whenever/whatever that may be.

I wil try Asda Own Brand Earl Grey on your recommendation.

I am very partial to Twinings Aromatics Chai (black label on the box), although quite difficult to find, if you do get some, I strongly suggest it. Equally pleasant at any strength, although my own personal preference on experimentation is moderate with a little honey, as that compliments the flavour of the tea well without overpowering it. Best made as hot as possible.

Although I suggest, obviously, that you buy a box and find your own method, but a very enjoyable tea.

I also recommend a cup of Whittards Of Chelsea Green Peach tea from their Green Tea range. (comes in bags and loose leaf varieties). I've only tried this briefly but thoroughly enjoyed it.

I've got a blend of Whittards and Twinings loose-leaf Earl Gray.  Can't find it in the shops- it is the happy result of buying one blend on a three-day fieldtrip and mixing it in with my usual supply when I got home  Cheesy

How did that work out, as the Whittards I find to be a little bit on the bitter side and the Twinings making a slightly weaker brew. I imagine not so badly at all?

It's actually got quite a nice flavour.  A slightly weaker bitter taste about it.  Difficult to describe it really- it tastes different but I can't quite put my finger on it.  It varies too- sometimes you get a spoonful of the strong bitter stuff, sometimes a spoonful of the weaker blend.  It keeps the tastebuds on their toes at least!
