We’ve had some builders round recently (btw. this is possibly a uniquely British Brilliant Idea) and when you ask whether they want a drink, the reply is invariably “tea, strong with two sugars please”.
I’m afraid we’re too middle class to have strong tea in our house (Earl Grey or English Breakfast in our house darling 😉 and I have to raid the baking draw for sugar. I know this is probably a cliche, but it’s based on my experience.
Brilliant Idea #330 is a teabag that contains strong tea and two sugar cubes. If you’re getting the builders in you simply buy a box of Builder’s Tea. Jobs a good-um.
