The Tea of Impoverishment

The English, as we know, have managed to keep their monarchy in fine fettle. They also succeeded in thrashing Mr Hitler and the band of imbeciles who believed to the end in the deadly mirage of National Socialism; so all their eccentricities, like driving on the left, confusing people with a non-metric system, boiling an excellent beef “roast,” liberally dousing all their meals with the notorious HP sauce, or even paying $800 for a cup of tea, can’t really be held against them … It could even be argued that it’s natural, right, as a Golden Tips Tea cannot be compared with a bog-standard Lipton cuppa, which is just as notorious as the previously mentioned sauce, and further, that the French shouldn’t be throwing stones, when they charge more than 100,000 euros for some bottles of Romanée-Conti.
