I gave up tea the same day I gave up fizzy drinks, 31st December 2004.
Unfortunately, the tea abstinence ended a couple of months back when I started a new job and my stress levels went to new highs.
I’m back off tea now, a whole day spent in bed with a major headache caused by tea withdrawal made sure of that.
Now, my dilemma. I have started drinking dandelion tea and frankly it tastes like grass and not the good type either. So I ask for your help, apart from hot water, which I’m rather partial to, do you have any hot drink recommendations? Preferably ones that are good for me.

The Fiancé Chronicles
Whilst watching “Top 100 Love Songs” on some random music channel.
Saima: Guess who’s number two…Backstreet Boys’ “I’ll Never Break Your Heart”
So So Boy: Wow. That really is a number two.

If you watch one thing on TV at the moment, make it BBC 2’s Time Trumpet. It’s a “spoof clip show in which celebrity talking heads reminisce about events of the past decades” and its probably the funniest thing I’ve watched in a while. The year is 2031 and the presenter looks back at 2006 onwards with views from an aging Charlotte Church and decrepit David Beckham. It also features an appearance from Steward Lee who is one of my favourite comedians.
You’ve only missed two episodes so far but clips can be seen at the Time Trumpet and BBC 2 websites. Unfortunately there are no clips for the Eastenders’ “all the drinks and glasses in the Queen Vic are coordinated against a green screen without actors and CGIed in afterwards” bit. Magic.
