    Our Tea is currently on the set of Hollyoaks (6.30pm weeknights C4). Here is the Today was Fun version of this week's episodes...

    Northern Lights Graham works on sending the first shipment to Reikjavik. Will Sleepy Tea really work when it's daylight for 24 hours throughout June and July?

    As she becomes GreenerSharyn trawls through the company's travel expenses trying to calculate how much carbon the company has used in the last twelve months? Are bicycles the way forward?

    Teastock Anita (aka Asheba) is in discussions with a West End retailer to perform at their summer event - Teastock. Stay tuned for details

    Romancing Africa
    .
    I recently travelled to South Africa and visited a private game reserve four hours drive from Johannesburg. I sampled the Roibos tea while I was out there but when asked "What would you like for your evening drive drink?" Gin and Tonic was the obvious answer.

    Between ordering our drink and finding the perfect place to watch the sun setting over Madikwe Game reserve there was plenty of time to discover a large family of elephants feeding in the long grass.

    The temperature dropped and we pulled the blankets firmly around us for the drive home in the open top landrover. Progress was slow on the way back to the lodge as a young male elephant was quite happy to walk ahead of us along the same track.

    Lanterns, candles and two open fires were all lit in preparation for our arrival back to the lodge and dinner in the Boma. If you ever want to visit on of the most romantic game lodges in Africa, I cant recommend Tuningi highly enough.

    Tea Time
    (with the lions)
    It's a foggy African morning and we are bumping along a dirt track in an open top landrover on our way to find lions.

    Zebras are bleeting warnings to each other in the distance when we find three young males are eating on a Wilderbeast carcass that hasn't been dead long.

    We follow them for two hours as they fill their bellies and head off to the waterhole for a drink. Then it's our turn for a tea break.

    Our guide Haydn assures us that it is safe to get out of the vehicle for our cuppa and homemade cookies but it takes some convincing. Little did we know that the following morning we would discover another lion kill five minutes up the road from where we stood!
