"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Teatime Treats


When a friend returned from a trip to Ooty I was very pleased to see him.

When he presented me with four caddies of Nigiri, single-estate teas,
I was delighted!

  1. I’ve heard of Nilgiri teas. How lovely. Do they suit different times of day?

    • I’m not really sure. So far Dalila has prepared only the Havukal variety for me.
      It certainly tastes delicious: the perfect combination of strength and delicacy…

    Don’t the tins look smart too? Far better than my box of Yorkshire tea, which reminds me, I have very little left so must buy more.

    • Ah, Yorkshire tea.. I always enjoyed its rich, and almost malty, taste.
