THE LONDON MUSEUM DOES IT AS WELL!
Yes, the Loose Leaf Tea con has also reached the cafe in the London Museum. Yet another key location for visitors and tourists has joined in with the tea-bag in a pot being called Loose Leaf tea.
Why must so many monopolized cafe’s cheat their customers? Everybody knows that loose leaf tea means tea which is loose in a tea pot, and must therefore require a tea strainer, which can be built into the pot for convenience.
It does not mean whichever tea you require is selected from boxes of basic normal sized tea bags, and the tea bag is placed into a tiny pot and called Loose Leaf Tea.
The London Museum, like the Cafe at the Maritime Museum in Greenwich, are totally seeing off their customers.
This time they’re charging £2.50 for the use of one standard size English Breakfast tea bag, some hot water and 10p in milk. It is clearly in their price list as Loose Leaf Tea. There is no option for non-loose leaf tea!
How about showing some fair play.
As this has happened in two museums I have been to, I think I’ll visit a few more, and see just how wide-spread this practice is.
I’ll keep you up to date.
