Oldest Tea Lady & PG Tips Chimps

Yesterday we featured pieces on 40 pound tea bags and million dollar cocktails, including one that contains Rooibos "tea".

In a similar vein, here's a recent piece from the Salford Advertiser on the "oldest tea lady in town". That town would presumably be Salford. That's in Britain, by the way. At age 96, it might be safe to say that Betty Lowe is the oldest tea lady anywhere.

For a verified world record related to tea, check out this bit from Guinness World Records on the Most Enduring Commercial Stars. As Guinness would have us believe, they are a gang of chimps who appeared in PG Tips commercials from 1956-1994.

If you'd like to get a glimpse of some of the chimp ads, as well as many other PG Tips ad campaigns, check out the Timeline page at their Web site.
