Lemongrass supergrass

New Cross, you've changed. Police were called to local cafe Birdie Num Nums by a customer upset that he had been served lemon and ginger tea instead of the lemongrass and ginger tea that he ordered. The Standard reports:

Sevjan Melissa, 30, who owns Birdie Num Nums in Lewisham Way, New Cross, said staff gave the customer a lemon and ginger tea instead of the lemongrass and ginger tea that he ordered.

She claims that when the man complained staff apologised and offered him a full refund but he was unsatisfied and started writing a TripAdvisor review while still in the café.

Ms Melissa claims that when she asked him to leave, the man then called the police.

However, the customer, Roberto Lattarulo, a 33-year-old recruitment manager for a healthcare regulator, has defended his actions, and claims he was not given a proper reason for being asked to leave.

Mr Lattarulo, who lives in Lewisham and was visiting the café with his girlfriend, told the Standard: "I wanted a lemongrass and ginger tea, it's not something you find commonly in cafés, so I was quite surprised, but instead I got a lemon and ginger teabag.

"If you haven't got something, you tell the customer you haven't got what they ordered and then offer them an alternative, but they just brought the wrong thing."

It unclear at this time where the Ghetto Boys and Peckham Boys stand on herbal tea, but this is a fault line with the potential to tear communities apart.

Thank you to Monkeyboy and Brockley Nicola for alerting me.
