Thanks, that would be brilliant!
No problems with the delay - I will be at sea another 5 months myself .

coffee is not a beverage, it's a religion (speaking for myself)
Tea is a minor deity

Re: Tea for Two

The only Lipton worth drinking is the Yellow Label which you can find in Indian groceries. Otherwise, you need to find PG Tipps. Typhoo or tetley will do in a pinch.
... and YES we do have a proper china teapot on board ... if it breaks we'll get another. No other way to make proper tea.
cheers,
NatKat

Lipton's Yellow Label tea is the only type readily available here in Greece. It produces the most wishy washy brew known to man! For a proper cup of English tea you need to find Yorkshire tea, PG tips or Tetley. Twinings is okay but a bit 'fussy' for real English tea.

Re: Tea for Two

Should we be clearer about whether one needs a porcelain teapot versus a good, sturdy, brown Rockingham pottery pot? With older pottery pots beware lead content. Otherwise you can't beat pottery for holding the heat and nurturing one's precious tea.

Not if I can help it. Best place I ever left, excepting Shreveport, LA.

Tea's better here too :-)

How old?

I have a Brown Betty (fairly recent, less than 5yo) but I have to say the little tetsubin* does a fairly decent job of it
