Here at The Design Foundry, we like tea. We like tea a lot actually. So much so that we pride ourselves on the precise timing, water temperature and milk dosage -not to mention the love and, of course, a cheeky sugar for Mike- that goes into making one of our deliciously comforting cuppas.
Now, I’m not going to go on and on about it like, but we take these things seriously and will no longer put up with a ‘tea torturer’. You know what I’m on about…the person in the office who presents you with a watery, tasteless, milky mess in the hope of never being asked to make one again. You know the one. Lazy. Look, you don’t need to be Mrs Doyle but at least make a little effort.
Let’s put a stop to this now and forever more. No longer will we suffer a poor cuppa in silence. No longer will our caffeine intake be subjected to starvation. No longer will we let them purchase ‘One Cup’, the teabag where less really is less.
Come on guys, give us a quality teabag, give it 4 minutes (or 7 if you’re into health and that), and give it a gulp of semi-skimmed. Just give us a decent cuppa. You’ll feel better about yourself, we promise.
To help rather than ‘hate on’ the issue, I have come up with a couple of suggestions for fellow sufferers. Firstly, why not print out this handy pantone guide and circle your tea colour of choice (for reference, mine’s a 706-C) before plastering it to the tea cupboard or perhaps said tea torturer’s desk. Alternatively, purchase a fleet of colour matching mugs and specify your hue of choice before the kettle boils.
Whatever happens, good luck to you and happy tea making.
