A Yard of Tea

A yard of ale converted for use by tea drinkers. a.k.a. oolongated tea
 
(+6, -6)

Beer drinkers have long been able to demonstrate their capacity for swallowing large amounts of the brew using a device called A Yard of Ale (see link if you don't know what it looks like)

Many folk are confirmed Tea-totalers, and have had no equivalent until the introduction of The Yard of Tea.

This is a simple modification to the standard yard of ale. It consists of a tea cup, complete with handle, with a hole cut in its side, into which the neck of the yard of ale tube is inserted and fused to create a water tight seal.

Tea drinkers wishing to assert their quaffing abilities will find every polite café has one of these dubious instruments tucked away behind the counter, waiting for the foolhardy to rise to the challenge.
