Blow is a term in boxing for a punch that makes contact, and suggests a fist has landed on an opponent to bring the applier closer to victory. Boxing is a tense and often exhilarating experience: the punch, the tension of anticipation, the adrenaline from delivering and receiving, the bell dinging, the ring, and the bay of the crowd. Occasionally however, the blow of the punch does not make contact. It becomes an impossible proposition, a never to be seen, an experience left to imagination. Here maybe it is best to have tea instead. ‘Tea Boxing’ supplants the act of pugilism with that of afternoon tea, to which you are all cordially invited. Come taste the blow, sip the experience and partake in boxing by another means.
