Troika #27: Cuppa Tino

Oooh, I love a cuppa. I have a special large mug which gives me nearly a pint of the lovely brown fluids. Thats all fine and dandy when I’m at home, but finding somewhere to get a decent cuppa when I’m out an about is jolly hard. You can get coffee from various degrees of mediocre to excellent, but tea only seems to come in awful. And all because they don’t know how to put fresh water in a kettle. Rant, rant, rant.

Anyway, enough whingeing. Here are three songs all about tea!

  1. ‘Cup of Brown Joy’ by Professor Elemental
    When I say ‘OOO!’ you say ‘LONG!’
  2. ‘Drink tea (For the love of God)’ by Kula Shaker
    Featuring the words of George Orwell’s monologue on tea
  3. ‘Tea in the Sahara’ by The Police
    A very mellow track, ideal for a tea break

Finally, here’s a picture of my favourite tea mug, its the ‘Cat in the Hat’ mug from Universal Studios in Orlando…

I have two of these now in case one breaks, but they’re very hard to get hold of! By the way, the title of this episode is a bastardisation of ‘Cupertino’, that there place where Apple lives…

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
