Tea In The Friendly Skies

Tea Guy returns to active duty.

Is it any surprise that the art of tea on a commercial airliner is not really much to write home about? I wasn't surprised a'tall.

What did surprise me was how absolutely magnificent a bag of Lipton tea, brewed in tepid water of dubious quality and served from a Styrofoam cup, could taste. It was like a life raft to a drowning man and I enjoyed the experience quite thoroughly, so much so that I had another one the next time the beverage cart came clanking dwon the aisle.

It's amazing how a couple cups of lukewarm Lipton made the time pass a bit more pleasantly on a cross-country flight.
