Smoking tea leaves January 15 2020

My dear old mother, born in 1888 (or was it 1887 - she was never quite sure), used to tell the tale of drying out tea leaves on brown paper, then rolling them into home made cigarettes, which she would smoke whilst sticking her head out of the bedroom window at Holt Hill College in Birkenhead, Merseyside, when a teen ager. The nuns would have been horrified if they had known what mischief their students were up to after tuition hours.
