What in the world is "black pudding?" I have remember "bangers and mash," and "toad-in-the-hole" (my sister refused to eat them thinking they were toads), but not familiar with black pudding.
Also, here in Texas if one orders "tea," one will get a large glass full of ice and chilled tea. In order to obtain proper tea, one must specify "hot," and not infrequently, several times in a row. Also, a "napkin" will get you something to put in your lap, not the other thing.
I am honoured. A cricket team named after me. I hope they are a good team. Glencairn is actually an estate just south of Wick, Scotland (near Lybster). I hope 'Nessie' doesn't go that far north. Keep her in the Loch.
As for black pudding? The recipe is not for the squeamish. Those of such indisposition look away now.
Black pudding is normally made of a mixture of pig’s blood with oatmeal, pork fat, onions and plenty of spices and seasonings, giving it a strong and robust flavour.
Iced tea? I cannot say I like it. A hot brew for me.
