We Kept Calm and Drink Tea – Nigel Pamenter

A new form of Creativity in tea today – Tea Poetry from our lovely fan Nigel Pamenter.


A few months ago I had the pleasure of twitter-meeting Nigel Pamenter, (@NigelPamenter) an OU English degree student and tea fanatic. He was incredibly supportive of my pop up adventures in Camberley, and on my first day in the shop he sent me a lovely email about how much he’d enjoyed the teas he’d ordered from me the week before. Attached to an email was also a poem that he’d written for his course, a love poem to something ‘not human’. As Nigel put it, “Unsurprisingly, I chose tea!!!  Tea has a fascinating social history, along with iconic status particularly from the war years, so I kind of infused the various imagery into an acrostic poem.” I’ve included Nigel’s poem below – please note this is all his work, and all credit is given to him.

Thanks for sharing, Nigel!
