From the Heart

The novelist A. P. Herbert wrote the following song in 1937.  It became hugely popular, with music by Henry Sullivan and sums up just how important a “nice cup of tea” was for the British.

I like a nice cup of tea in the morning

For to start the day you see.

And at half past eleven

Well my idea of heaven

Is a nice cup of tea.

I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,

And a nice cup of tea with my tea,

And when it’s time for bed

There’s a lot to be said

For a nice cup of tea.

So, after reading this … go make a nice cup of tea!
