Tea and DairyStix on the train to Newcastle

I wasn’t planning on taking a photo of this tea, or blogging about it, mainly because I get frowned at when I am by myself and start taking photos of beverages. The milk that came with this tea made me change my plans. Dairystix are sachets of milk. This seems like a good plan to me as it must surely take less plastic to make than those insane mini plastic pots. I found them easy to open and they made me smile at the novelty value (you can see why people frown at me: I smile at milk).

However, some people on the train found them very annoying and one lady got up and wandered the carriage asking for scissors. A lady a few rows down lent her some and they proceeded with their coffee happily.

Teapot? No.
Leaf tea? PG Tips teabag.
Milk jug? Dairystix!
Price? £1.30.
Cake? No.
Go again? If I need tea on a National Express East Coast train.

Polesden Lacey – milk update

Well, after all my complaining about milk I did bite the bullet and I emailed Polesden Lacey about their use of little plastic pots. They have replied, and said that it’s a temporary thing while they wait for a delivery of milk jugs, hurrah! They also recyle everything they can, use re-usable delivery containers and are going to start composting the waste too. It’s good to know that they are already in the process of changing and that they are being green too. Three cheers for green tea! 😉
