Desert Island Teas with Tony and Colin of Manchester

Welcome to another of our series of Desert Island Teas - this time Tony, manager, and Colin of our Manchester store tell us what they would like to take to make life on a desert island bearable ...

Tony of our Manchester Store

Two teas

Tony: Ceylon is my absolute favourite tea.  So, as a treat I'd have one of these as a 'pick me up'. Peppermint is a great tummy soothing tea.  I'm sure I would end up eating something that upsets my tummy so this would be a must have.

 Colin: Lapsang Souchong - The smoked taste a perfect accompaniment to the fish I will catch. English Breakfast - for those nostalgic island days

One pack biscuits

Tony: I would like to say caramel and sea salt.  But I imagine I might be a bit fed up with sea salt after a while!

Colin: Milk Chocolate Chunk.  Because.......  Milk Chocolate!

Colin of Manchester

One book

 Tony: Day of the Triffids - John Wyndman.  This will give me hope when I'm feeling lonely.

 Colin: Sum - David Eagleman.  Because I haven't finished it yet.

One song

Tony: The Chain - Fleetwood Mac.  Air guitar central!!!

Colin: Kandi's - Dont Think I'm Not...  because by that point I won't be.

One luxury item

Tony: Satellite mobile phone with solar powered battery pack..  "Hi Mom"

Colin: Mocha Pot.  I'm hoping I can grow, roast and grind my own coffee.  I've got a lifetime to learn how to!

Which desert island would you prefer to be cast away on?

Tony: Aldabra Island, home to the world's largest population of giant tortoises.  My housemate won't let me have one.

Colin: The one with the bunker.


Thank you Tony and Colin!
