Wet the Tea

We’re big tea drinkers round here so yesterday, when we were listening to out local radio station County Sound 103FM at dinner time, and someone user the expression to “wet the tea”. I’d never heard it before, but apparently my grandfather used it all the time. My mum was delighted cos she hadn’t heard it in such a long time. We’d normally use the more mundane term to “make the tea”.


There’s nothing like a nice relaxing cuppa after a meal … if there’s room for it!

We were a bit upset afterwards when the presenter of the show was asking if you can still get loose tea, and then she had the gall to say that tea out of a bag was much nicer than loose tea. GRRRRRRRR. Okay everyone has their own opinion, but I don’t like the taste of paper, or as someone that rang in said “I wouldn’t like to drink anyone elses dust sweepings” (referring to the fact that bag tea is made from tea particles that aren’t big enough to go into loose tea).

So instead of making the tea, from now on I might wet it every now and again :*)
