Bertie Wooster Makes Tea

 

Bertie Wooster tries his hand at making tea

In the tv series Jeeves and Wooster,  Bertie (played by Hugh Laurie) discovers the challenges of tea making while Jeeves (Stephen Fry) is away.  He wisely refers to Mrs Beeton's book of Household Management for guidance.  Trying to fill the whistling tea kettle  with water without removing the stopper was the first hurdle to overcome. Fortunately Jeeves arrived back in time to complete the task

 

Bertie puts his feet up after his exersions while Jeeves takes over the tea making. Tea is served in Royal Worcester Raffles China cups from a set that is used in Berties flat throughout the series.
