Well, not quite……
I am British, and therefore I love tea. I don’t think you can be British and not like tea, so I guess this was my fate before I was even a twinkle in my father’s eye.
A blog I read recently informed me that the average English person drinks 3-4 cups of tea per day.
I probably average ten on a good day, but if it’s a Tuesday or something drastic has happened, I could be making it nearer the twenty mark.
Tea is the common name for the Camellia sinensis plant, and it is prepared by curing the leaves and buds, and adding water (Or in other words, someone does that in the background and we take the bag out and add the hot water from the kettle).
I am a tea addict. I can tell if the milk is fresh or that horrible sachet stuff that you get in room service, and I reckon I could have a good go at guessing what went first in the cup, the milk or the water. And there are so many glorious types of tea! I especially love Twinings apple and pear, or pineapple and grapefruit, all blended with green tea rather than your bog standard builders. You don’t even need to play guess the milk with those!
