Tea and Cream

The band Cream, that is.

Ginger Baker, former drummer of Cream (and Blind Faith), recorded a song called "T.U.S.A." with his band Masters of Reality. It is hilarious, cheeky - and illustrates perfectly the frustration of trying to get a proper cup of tea in America!


Now this is serious!

One thing in this country that really bothers me
Is the inability of Yanks to make a good cup of tea
Instructions are printed on the tea bag
But they either can't read
Or they think it's a gag

I mean, pour boiling water over the tea
How simple and clear can the instructions be?

They bring you a cup with a lemon slice
And an unopened tea bag beside it (How nice)
And a pot of water and it may be hot
But boiling it isn't, so tea you have not

Why can't we
Get our tea?
We need tea
To set us free!

It's boiling water that brings out tea's flavor
With a dash of milk you've a real brew to savor
They drink lukewarm brown water that looks like gnat's pee
And it's got nothing to do with a good cup of tea

Pour boiling water over the tea
How simple and clear
Can the instructions be?

Pour boiling water over the tea...
Pour boiling water over the tea...
