Legend had it that during a dorm feast Sarah Granger-Field refused an awfully good bottle of wine because it was served in a teacup. She had said she couldn't possibly drink the stuff in that receptacle. Only a wine glass would do. The taste of the cup would simply destroy one's taste buds ... wine taste buds. She had had an ordinary drink of Ribena instead.
