Take It As Red

The Ultimate Teabag

Ok, so now I'm in a complete quandary. I really want the squid t-shirt, but hot damn, a diamond encrusted teabag. For the PG tips fanatic, that really is the Holy Grail.

75,000 pounds? Mere chump change to the blogger.

Not that PG tips is much cheaper here in NL, they're 5 euro for a box of 80. That's around a 400% markup from the UK price of approximately one pound twenty or so , and to someone like me who can drink around 10 cups of tea a day, that's fair old expense. I have tried Dutch teabags, but if you open them up and look inside they're filled with teadust; literally, the sweepings left over when the leaves are used for the good tea brands. They taste stale and dusty and make a lousy cup of tea. the only Dutch tea I have any time for is Max Havelaar's organic Engelse melange, but they're so expensive I may as well make the effort to go and get PG tips, however extortionate the cost.
"The diamond teabag worth £7,500 has been made by Boodles jewellers to celebrate PG Tips 75th birthday. The tea bag took three months to make has been hand-crafted using 280 diamonds. Pete Harbour, spokesman for PG Tips said: "As it's our 75th birthday, we wanted to do something special to remind people just how much they love the great British cup of tea. The tea bag will eventually be used as part of a prize draw to raise money for Manchester Children's Hospitals, a charity chosen by workers at the PG Tips factory in Trafford Park, Manchester."
Sign me up, how much are the tickets?
