Bringing civilisation to the natives
While expats have been able to buy PG Tips for years in New York from a handful of twee specialist English food stores, ordinary supermarkets will now stock Britain's biggest selling tea brand across America
The problem remains is that my dear American friends are only trusted with wussy 110 v electricity. A hamster in a wheel could boil a kettle faster. Even here the coffee supping Europeans have weakened our jolt juice from a proper 240 v to an armflapping metrosexual 220 v. Without a proper amount of umph in your socket the water only simmers, you need a full James Wattian rolling boil, the water spitting and hissing as it is poured over the precious tea leaves. So I am afraid the Septics are going to be disappointed again as they wave a bag about in water that isn't hot enough to bathe in. Just don't go chucking it all in the harbour again, please.
