Converted to Yorkshire Tea!

I recently watched motorcycle racer Guy Martin for the first time on TV. What an amazing personality! Not only does he race in such events as the Isle of Man TT races, he has also had a TV series about breaking various records such as riding a motorcycle on water. And he drinks Yorkshire Tea.

I thought I would try it too - the Yorkshire Tea that is, not the motorcycling. I'm totally converted! Best brew ever ...

Teatime for plants!

*
Not wanting to waste even a drop, I save the used teabags and feed the contents to my plants. They've never looked better!

Other things you can do with used teabags - photograph them with some spring onion ends and an old sock and use Photoshop to make a giraffe sock puppet. (A lot less messy than sticking the actual teabags to a sock!)

Raph G. Neckmann has always been partial to a good brew of tea - I will have to find a way of getting some Yorkshire Tea across to Camelopardalis Constellation and see what he thinks of it!

Yorkshire tea is universally popular, I'm sure it will go down well in Camelopardalis Constellation!

Another use of teabags is to "tint" old-fashioned b&w photo prints. Instant vintage with one in the last rinsing bath.

I'm sure it will, Crafty Green Poet - and it will have long necks to go down! :)

That sounds good, RuneE - I'll have to try it!
