M's masterpiece illustrating the tea we drank at Jodrell Bank

I’ve never been to Jodrell Bank before which is surprising as it’s just the kind of place we used to go to on family holidays. Jodrell Bank is part of the University of Manchester and has huge, I mean HUGE, radio telescopes. The visitor centre explains what they do and then there’s a cinema where you can watch a 3D film about a journey to Mars. We also saw ‘Bigger than big’ which showed all the planets in relation to each other and to the sun etc. It made my mind hurt.

It also has a cafe which, naturally, we drank tea in. As the telescopes at Jodrell Bank work using radio waves it asks you to turn off your mobile phones. This meant that I couldn’t take a photo of the tea as I use the camera on my mobile phone. M was not impressed at this excuse and decided a pictorial representation of tea was needed. Picking up a flyer from a nearby table and borrowing a biro, she proceeded to draw the tea. I can’t do the postmodern masterpiece produced justice as I don’t have a scanner, but I hope the photo gives you some idea of the genius of the drawing.

Teapot? Yes.
Leaf tea? Tea bags.
Milk jug? Plastic pots.
Price? 80p I think.
Cake? Some, mainly packet biscuits.
Go again? Yes.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
