Blueberry Tea | Slang/Noun | The last customer who lingers long after the restaurant closes. The term comes from a hot and highly aromatic after dinner drink popularized in the 1980s/90s (1 oz Grand Marnier, 1 oz Amaretto, 4 oz hot Orange Pekoe tea served in a brandy snifter with a sugared rim). To order a Blueberry Tea is to declare the intention to stay beyond one’s welcome. Variants: camper, pajamas.

Usage | “I don’t mean to alarm you, but I’ve served Table #66 before. I’m afraid they’re Blueberry Teas.”
