image for Tea Bag Crisis Looms
The taste of Harrogate and Ilkley

There were worried looks and a lot of 'pacing up-and-down' in one Battambang household last night, after a man realised he was down to his last few tea bags.

Moys Kenwood, 54, made himself a 'proper brew' as usual, but noticed that there were only '7 or 8' of the Yorkshire Tea tea bags left in the container in which he keeps them.

Yorkshire Tea is a particularly 'bracing' brew with a distinctive flavour, having been produced, since 1883, from leaves grown in tea gardens in Yorkshire, at both Harrogate and Ilkley. The hills around the two towns, low cloud cover and frequent rainfall are known to contribute to the strong taste for which Yorkshire Tea is so popular, and so sought-after. The company's catchphrase is "where everything's done better". Kenwood praised it when he said:

"A cup of Yorkshire Tea is so strong, that the spoon can stand up in the brew unaided."

Kenwood had bought the tea bags in a 240-bag box in England late in 2017, and, Yorkshire Tea not being available locally, means dark days lie ahead.

"Looks like I'll have to make do with Lipton from now on," moaned he.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
