I have just been sent the following list of tea-related quotes by a fellow blogger…

Corporal Hancock: Sir. [Offers mug of tea.]
Major General Urquhart: Hancock. I’ve got lunatics laughing at me from the woods. My original plan has been scuppered now that the jeeps haven’t arrived. My communications are completely broken down. Do you really believe any of that can be helped by a cup of tea?

Lady Astor (infuriated): Mister Churchill, if I were your wife, I’d put poison in your tea.
