Anyone who uses Google will have noticed today's doodle is dedicated to the UK's love of tea - or more specifically to the appearance 358 years ago of the first advert for tea. It was described as "a China drink", which is the phrase Samuel Pepys used a few years later when he first tried the beverage.
Tea, when it first arrived on these shores, was incredibly expensive. Only the richest toffs could afford it, and they kept it locked away in ornate caddies. The lady of the house would keep the caddy key so that the servants couldn't get their filthy mitts on the precious leaves.
So this morning I have five tea/cup related photos for you. Why don't you brew up a cuppa, sit down, and visit Amy at Love Made My Home to enjoy other people's fives.
Last week I showed you an extract from Blackpool's comedy carpet. Well this one's just up the coast in Morecambe, and it's in front of a statue of the town's famous son Eric. There are lots of his catch phrases set into the floor around the sculpture, but I think this is my favourite.
