Time to bust out the Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend.

Fortnum and Mason
Sometimes there is the need for a stronger blend. Monday morning was one of those times, it doesn't take much these days for me to need the benefits of a wee pick me up. Then it’s time to bust out the Fortnum and Mason Royal Blend. Even better when using the cute tea pot for one.
I was looking at caffeine free tea today, and just stood there thinking, so what’s the point in that!  I know that some people can’t have caffeine as it makes them ill, but I also know some people say it keeps them awake. I don’t think there is anything that keeps me awake. Once I’m snuggled up that’s it, short of my house falling into a sink hole, I’m asleep.
In a previous life, I worked in a convent (yes I did) and I often remember the old nuns would be wandering the corridors looking for a cup of tea (complete with caffeine) because they couldn’t sleep. If I ever do wake up in the middle of the night, even with my obsession with tea, it’s the last thing I would think of doing.
So the question of the day is, does caffeine keep you awake? Or does it make you ill?


  1. Caffeine doesn't have much of an effect on me one way or another.Maybe I drink it too much!

  2. I got to have my caffeine in the morning... always!
