Phew! Now I can admit that I don't like cucumber sandwiches. This would be because I don't like cucumber, and can't imagine why anyone would make sandwiches of the watery, nasty things. Other than that, my food tastes are conventionally English. Indian, check. Chinese, check. Italian, check. No more dreadful disclosures to come.

I have had iced tea and I found it utterly revolting, but, then again, it was Starbucks. Speaking of teas, my favourite tea is rooibos tea (hot, of course).


My personal favourite is a good Darjeeling.  I have had oolong (spelling?) tea and it was good, but then again I was in a room with a friend of a friend who was offering it to us, and we were smoking English pipe tobacco (Dunhill Nightcap) and had some whiskey, too.  (I believe it was Rebel Yell.)  So it needs to be tested in more controlled circumstances !

Oolong (I think the spelling's right) is OK. Of the teas I've had, the only ones I didn't like were Earl Grey and iced. I'm not too keen on mint either.

I did not like Early Grey, either.  I do like some iced teas, though, if they are sufficiently sweetened.

I'm not very keen on sweetening, but maybe it's good for iced tea. I wouldn't know: I haven't tried it.

I rather like Earl Grey (as a 'flavoured tea', to be sipped hot, not with a meal). 

A friend of mine from the South Carolina coast introduced me to a domestic tea (well, if you count South Carolina tea as 'domestic tea), and if it weren't so pricey, it would be my preferred tea (he drinks it hot, with cream and lemon, hot with cream is OK, but I don't like lemon tea, period).

I agree that sweetened hot tea isn't a pleasant experience, but I don't like cold tea without the sugar.

Maybe that's the problem. I didn't try iced tea with any sweetener.

Back to Vegimite for a minute...

Peter is right it is like Marmite, and, like Marmite, it is absolutely DISGUSTING.
All this guff about how all Australians love Vegimite is total nonsense.  I don't know how anyone can get excited about spreading something that looks like pooh onto a perfectly respectable piece of toast.

As for crumpets, I like nothing better than lashings of butter and crunchy peanut butter.

I understand Vegemite is something like Marmite, one of the most purely disgusting substances ever consumed by human beings. I'm a celebrity, get me out of here isn't even in it. It basically looks and smells like essence of deeply decayed mouse. What it tastes like, I naturally couldn't tell you.



What an attractive description Peter haha. But true.

I used to absolutely hate Vegemite, but now I love it. And I spread it on quite thick, most people cringe when they see how I spread it!

Both sides of crumpets are toasted.     
One may spread butter on the porous side.    
One may spread jam or marmalade on top.   [smile][smile]

Thanks for the advice. But I do not have crumpets at this time. I had them nearly six years ago though!
