Tea Time!

Posted on

tea_time

I’ve taken tea on Bahrain’s isle, Sri Lanka and Hong-Kong,

Where desert sands run mile on mile

And sunlight’s powerful strong;

Tea from the gallery in our plane

Gave ease when flights were long.

In tropic heat, in freezing rain

The tea-cup came along.

Tea in Japan, tea in Malay,

Tea in Aden’s heat.

At cricket on a summer’s day

A tea is hard to beat.

And I remember taking tea in the land of Lorna Doone

With Devon cream – just you and me

Whilst on our honeymoon.

– “Tea, Please” (Jasper Miles)
