I drink tea.
I actually drink quite a lot of it. My mug has a pint capacity and I probably fill it between four or six times a day.
The irony is that I am renowned for my coffee making skills. Visitors to The Manor light up at the offer of one of my coffees. I have one of those machines with fancy lights and a nozzle that makes rude noises into the milk. I actually enjoy making coffee but very rarely drink it myself at home.
When I am out and about though the story is different. I would never order a tea in a pub or coffee shop – it always has to be coffee [or in the case of the pub, something a little stronger]. Somehow tea in a coffee shop is an anathema and against the natural order of things, and I wouldn’t dream of upsetting the balance.
So two cups of tea can reduce the risk of my mortality? Wow! A 19% chance of not dying? That’s not bad, and that’s from only two cups. Several pints must reduce my risk of mortality to close on 100%?
I am immortal!
