    Other way round for me, my much better half is the coffee drinker, you might get your lady some Cornish tea, I'd recommend Smugglers Brew, we grow some decent coffee as well, so I've bin told.

    Looks classy doesn't it? My good lady has been delving into some old family records - Seems 'high grown' can have two connotations, depending where your Victorian tea grower had his plantation. If grown on the plains, then likely to refer to top leaves of bush. However if one was a really well off sod and could afford a plantation in the cooler foot hills, then 'high grown' refers to altitude obviously. With the box probably from Fortnams, should think the phrase refers to the better tasting tea from 'up the mountain'. Whatever it is, it just goes to show where an interesting report can meander to!

    It did veer off at a bit of a tangent, it didn't seem to upset anyone though and I enjoyed it. Thanks

    It's the bits of veering off tangent that lead to other interesting bits that I like on here!
