Time for Tea
by Dream Cloutman-Green, Jon Cloutman-Green, Colin Wallace
In a future where the British Empire still reigns supreme, tea is all. Tea is the supplier of moral fibre to the human race allowing its continued success through out the galaxy, reguardless of the jolly foreigner races that keep insisting otherwise. The war on the edges of the Empire has been running for over 5 years now and the tea supply has been streached by the need to supply ships so far away in order to avoid overwhelming failure. This has caused the price of tea within the rest of the empire to rise to the point where riots have been politely implied on some planets if extra tea is not provided soon. Imagine the devastation therefore when the Empires largest tea freighter was 'tea napped'!

It is essential for the future of the Empire that the tea is returned and so a negotiation team has been sent to the nearest space station in order to ensure its return. However in a Universe where radical Beanists threaten to destroy the true leaf and infusiantistas have started to refute the benefits of the blessed caffine can the negotiations succeed
