With TEA being strictly rationed, all my birthdays came at once on Saturday when I was given a present of not only a pack of 80 tea bags (the difference in the 1940s would be that it would have been loose tea) BUT the tea had come all the way from ENGLAND! (I am British and moved here to Nova Scotia in Canada in 2004)..
The bearers of such a fabulous gift were my EX Husband’s parents- it was truly wonderful to see them again as it had been a very long 5 years since we last sat face to face.
So yesterday, I have shared some of my British tea ration with my kids and we have enjoyed several cups of hot English tea served from a nice white teapot and accompanied by freshly baked rock buns.
