Which is exactly why I said in my post that I was choosy about country of origin.

Exactly, Foxy. If it is something that can be produced in the UK or - even better, Yorkshire - then I will not buy imported versions. Time there was another 'I'm backing Britain' campaign!
Yes - I drink tea, Besoeker. Yorkshire Tea - produced by Betty's/Taylor's of Harrogate - who happen to be members of The Ethical Tea Partnership and who are striving to improve conditions/wages for the workers in Assam.
No - I do not drink coffee.
It may be only a drop in the ocean but, at least I am trying to support home growers and - as Tesco never tires of telling us - every little helps!
