Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Perhaps the most incongruous fact about this hard-drinking heavy-smoking loud-talking old fellow is that I love hot tea - especially really high-quality tea. My favorite is Darjeeing tea from the Indian region of the same name. BTW, in this parody pronounce "favorite" as "fav'rite" to make the pacing a little easier in places. ;D



(Spoken in chant over and over again)
Oh, by Jove, oh yes my golly.

(Sung)
I'm a real tea lover.
I'm a real gourmet.
I can tell orange pekoe tea
From a fine Earl Grey.

And the brew which
Makes me salivate
Is the one grown
In West Bengal state. I'm......

(Background chant stops)
I'm hooked on Darjeeling.
My tastebuds are reeling.
It is my favorite tea.

I'm no fan of green tea.
Most oolong is okay.
Lipton's mass-produced brand
Will suffice for everyday.
But when I crave great tea
With friends or by myself,
I unwrap the package
From my highest shelf.

First the fragrant
Vapors fill the room.
Then the flavor
Sets my mouth a-bloom. I'm....

I'm hooked on Darjeeling.
It gives me a feeling
Akin to ecstasy.


(Instrumental break, then the background chant resumes under the vocal)


And my British
Friends are so impressed
That a Yank can
Be so tea obsessed. I'm....

(Background chant stops)
I'm hooked on Darjeeling.
A cup full of healing,
My warm serenity.

I'm hooked on Darjeeling.
And although I'm free-wheeling,
I find tranquility.

You know I'm hooked on Darjeeling.
It's much more than appealing.
It is my favorite tea!





Like "Champagne" and various European cheeses, Darjeeling tea has a G.I. (Geographic Indication of Goods) tag, and cannot be grown or manufactured anywhere else in the world. My introduction to the beverage was at age thirteen from a styrofoam cup while visiting the the India Pavillion at Expo '67 in Montreal - Canada's Centennial Exposition and World's Fair. The Droste chocolate products from the Netherlands Pavillion were equally as addictive. ;D

Not much of a tea drinker, myself...except when feeling poorly..and I like the use of the tea words, Sereni-tea, and tranquili-tea. I vote higher than a T for this...I vote A

Have to disagree, my friend--Earl Grey, any day, all the way, especially since Folgers or whomever stopped producing Tender Leaf Tea! Excellent work, though!
