Prepare for a journey...

...back into the mists of time...

there is swirling darkness, and quietly a flippery fish crawls out of the murk...

and has a cup of tea. And doesn't have to separate the tea bags BECAUSE THEY COME SINGLY. THAT'S RIGHT. NOT IN PAIRS.

How civilised we were back in the mists of time.

Who needs two tea bags? If you need two, you either like tea super strong or you're using a teapot. If you're using a teapot, then you should be using tea leaves, or there is no point.

SO WHO THE HELL DECIDED TO PAIR UP THE TEABAGS.

A very pertinent question.

I wonder if it's the same person who started putting cellophane wrapping on individual slices of cheese.

More to the point, why are you drinking tea when you could be using that lovely grinder of yours to make a damn fine coffee?

Hmm...we don't have this 'twin tea' problem in the States. I wonder why. You'd think of all the places in the world, the US would definitely be a Gimme A Double Prince of Wales kind of place.

Ah, but you see this way separation costs were halved - halved! at a stroke.

It's only a matter of time before they start peddling complete rolls of teabags in a handy tear-off dispenser. You'll pay more to do the work yourself.

Llew, at least you can put cellophane wrapped cheese in your lunchbox. That can you do with twin teabags? Mind you, individually wrapped teabags are even crazier. Who has the time?

Anonymous, I try to have as many vices as I can manage.

Oy vey, as I understand it, the States is about convenience. This really doesn't fall into the category.

And Stephen,yes! You could install a special dispenser in your pantry or place of work. Quickly apply for the patent.

Well, duh. Everybody knows that teabags mate for life.
