The trouble is, I can do loads of things with tea + christmas, but none of them fit with tube. Actually nothing comes to mind that starts with "tube" other than "tube alloys", and I don't think nuclear weapon programs are relevant.

(Google gets totally lost on "tube map". Ah yes, Christmas map, that well known... thing...)

Actually actually, tube TREE is just about possible, though I'm not convinced by teatree as a soap flavour. ("Her" would presumably be Laurelin or Hirilorn in that case.)
