    Greased tea could be exactly what it says - greasy horrible tea from a "Greasy Spoon" beachfront cafe. Or a slightly more contrived theory is that it is a clever pun on the greased poles seen in team sport fun-day event things. The image of the nation's most comforting symbol, our national drink, as a dangerous and slippery item, is quite compelling. Or it could just mean tea with the attending sweet scones and jam.

    According to Morrissey it's actually "greased" tea. Meaning tea in a cup not washed well, forming a greasy film on the top.

    The word is actually "Gris" which means 'Gray' in French.
