In 1920, T.S. Eliot mused in The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons”. Now, in this day and age, German tea brand Hälssen & Lyon’s tea calendar lets you tear off dates made from 1mm-thin slabs of compressed tea — and brew ’em. This means you can make a fine tea out of any day. If yesterday was a bad day, you’ve certainly earned it.
