It Ain’t What They Call Tea

I had tea today with singer and musician Mark Knopfler.

Initially I said I didn’t care for tea. Mark Knopfler said I hadn’t tried Anta-Bama tea from Portugal.

Mark and I go way back. I used to play tambourine for the band Dire Straits. My tambourine solo on Sultans of Swing has been said by many to be the source of the song’s catchiness.

I humored Mark by taking a sip of Anta-Bama. It certainly didn’t taste like tea. It reminded me of banana nectar if I’d ever had it.
