Oh no it’s Friday the 13th! Are any of you superstitious? Just make sure you don’t walk under any ladders, and hopefully you will be okay. Us? We don’t believe in any of that stuff so we are getting on with the usual print and design work!
Aside from all the delicious chocolate Easter eggs we have been eating, we have bid a fond farewell to the PEP Mad Hatter who caused us to go mad in March with lots of competitions and offers! His mission while he was hiding in and around our website was to find out how to make the perfect brew for his Mad Hatter Tea Party! Finally he has the results!
1. In what order must the ingredients be added?
The most popular way by far is tea bag, water, milk at 76% followed equally (all at 8%) by:
tea bag, milk, water
milk, tea bag, water
water, tea bag, milk
2. Will a tea bag do or must it be tea leaves?
100% of those who completed the survey use tea bags. Tea leaves are best left to granny!
3. If it’s a tea bag, are you a dunker or a squeezer?
Again a clean sweep or should that be squeeze? 100% squeeze the flavour out.
4. With or without sugar, or are you sweet enough as it is?
70% of our customers are sweet enough already, but we already knew that! Then it is a straight split between 1 sugar or 2 at 15% each.
5. If sweetener is needed, is this added at the beginning or the end of the ritual?
Everyone adds it at the end, no contest.
6. How do you take it? In a mug or perhaps only a cup and saucer will do?
Mug was the clear winner with 100% of the vote. Leave the cup and saucers to the oldies along with the leaves!
7. Does it have to be with a biscuit?
Possibly the most controversial question of the lot. Almost a fifty fifty split but the yummy biscuits just edged it coming in at 54% of the vote.
8. If you do prefer a biscuit, dunk or not to dunk that is the question?
Pretty clear here with 70% saying it has got to be dunked!
