I thought 'distinguised' meant that you were known for your ability to not be recognised...

Mabey it does-perhapsh i'm at fault for suggesting their should ever have been an H, 'err Doktor

Regarding the tea query, I've been on a bit of a chai kick (particularly by Stash Tea, but open to suggestions).  Otherwise, I, too, enjoy Lady Grey, but am hoping to get my hands on a good Russian Caravan so I can find out if I like it as much as I used to.

Good Evening Ladies.

Miss Octavia, re:- teas, have you considered Lapsang Souchong? it is an aquired taste what with having a smoky taste.
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.

Hello Ladies,
My am Miss Fi, I am quite new to these parts and I am wondering if this is a suitable place for a young lady to get acquainted with others of the appropriate social standing.
I am very partial to tea too. My favourite is Dilmah leaf tea,taken black in my pretty china teapot.
I worked some time as an apothecary's assistant and so can recommend some herbal tisanes for all sorts of simple ladies afflictions.
 In the afternoon I take a blend of my darling dilmah with rose petals and lavender, lemon verbena and lemon myrtle. It is very lovely and while it is  a little reminiscent of pot pourri has a rather lovely way of both pecking me up, refreshing my senses, calming me down and making me feel very loving and cuddly.
Very pleased to make your acquaintance... please pass the macaroons?

Macaroons?  When did those appear?  I would have stopped in sooner.

Here, have a little whiskey in your tea, Miss Fi.  *passes the flask over*

WHISKEY! *feigns horror as though she has never before considered drinking whiskey with tea*
Oh I'm not sure I should....

 I could perhaps just try a little....just to be polite of course.....
