Tea Fu is the ancient art of persuading others to make you a cuppa.

Most often practised in dwellings, the Tea Fu master will use psychological tricksterism as tea always tastes better when someone else has made it. The true master will also attempt workplace Tea Fu.

It has its own mini-site, where you can share your Tea Fu tips and tales.

Anyone working in advertising is welcome to pay me loads to either take the idea and build a TV campaign around it, or to build a viral site where people can record their office-based Tea Fu.
