The Owl and the Pussycat went to Tea
I've just finished off a packet of Whittard's Orange Pekoe tea. I knew orange referred to the colour rather than any flavour, but even according to Wikipedia, no-one is quite certain where "pekoe" derives from. It seems to me as though it ought to be an animal whose remains or extracts it would be slightly scandalous to find in a tea, such as a small cute baboon, or an Edward Lear creation.

Current Mood: whimsical
