Crabtree&Evelyn cheated our feelings

I consulted my colleague regarding some matters and was offered some tea.

“English Breakfast or Afternoon Tea?”
“Ooh yes, please! what’s the difference though?”
“Dunno.”

One says ‘full-bodied, malty and robust’, the other says, ‘a light blend’.

We took a closer look and saw this!

We ended up laughing so hard at our workstation…the situation is ridiculous, both for Crabtree and Evelyn, and consumers like us who are suckers for pretty packaging.

The conclusion is, both teas, same as they are, are excuses for taking several breaks. As suggested by the packaging, you drink one in the morning before working in the fields, and another after you’ve changed into your afternoon finery as a reward for the morning’s labours.
