Old Fashioned Tea Tax

On my way home from an appointment yesterday, I went to stock up my tea reserves on a whim at my local grocer's. This was mostly Twinings' fare, who was actually responsible for forming the Ethical Tea Partnership (link to the right). So while Twinings is a major "brand", I have no problem relying on them for my "everyday" stuffs.

In any case, imagine my surprise when for a moment I looked at my receipt and had forgotten that, in the spirit of the Revolutionary War, a tax on tea is still in absentia. I've included a photo of my receipt below, just to prove it. (The "tax" amount comes right next to the asterisks.) Enjoy! :)

All the best,
