    Love the calypso soundtrack, great to cheer you up on a cold day.

    Love how there’s a giant teapot crossing London Bridge and hardly anyone notices/cares. It takes more than that to faze a Londoner intent on getting to work in the morning!

    I really fancy a nice cup of tea now :)

    I love Tea. I am an American who loves English tea. My husband an I have it daily with milk. We have been to the U.K. many times and we enjoyed the tea shops. We live in Fresno, California and I believe there is a tea shop in Clovis, California. Cheers.
