Just tried his restaurant at heathrow T5 for the first time. Asked for 2 teas and they gave me one pot with one t bag and enough water for two very small cups. Gordon, no wonder your minted!

Why didn't you ask for more another teabag and more boiling water?

I did ask for some more water to top up and the server was going to bring another 2 teas, so i pointed out that there was only one bag in the pot. So she was going to charge 13 pounds for some hot water and 2 teabags.

Off topic - why are there so many beautiful people in airports. Just watched a stunning looking guy walk up the aisle and he's sitting right in front to my left. Can't stop perping at him.

I don't know enough about the rental costs of a unit at Heathrow to definitively say whether you are or aren't being U, but even I know the overheads must be astronomical. It's not just the cost of the teabag and water they have to think about.

<splutters tea> £13 for two cups of tea!

Fuck me! Utter madness.

How do you get tea for one person then? confused

SaucyJack Thu 23-Jul-15 09:01:17

Try and find a way to discreetly lick him just to pass the time.

It's what I'd do if it wasn't for this bloody restraining order.

Bambambini Thu 23-Jul-15 09:03:27

Honestly, i could reach out and touch him. Trying to catch a whiff.

Why the fuck would anyone even consider paying £13 for a cup of tea?
Take a flask and save yourself the money.

Can someone help me with the single tea?

Do they chop a tea bag in half then staple the loose end? Or do they use the tea bag for one single customer then save the tea bag to use again for the next one? Or drag two random people together to share a pot?

They will use a teeny tea-pot for that. The kind you have with a doll's tea-set.

Saucy, I think it might be fun to travel with you.

Can you get a flask through security?

Are you Roy Cropper noeffing?

Bambambini Thu 23-Jul-15 12:33:34

Well, the food seemed a reasonable price but didn't check cost of beverages! 3.25 for a tea and they try and fob you off with half a teabag. Twas rather posh though (compared with Giraffe) with loads of Bolly being quaffedat 8 in the morning.

Where are you going? Can I come?

(I've never understood tea ... just some stinky leaves in hot water - bleurgh!)
