Drinking tea is a very British pass time. When I think of tea and Britain I always recollect a great scene from Guy Ritchie’s cult classic Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It went as follows:
Eddie: The entire British empire was built on cups of tea…
Bacon: Yeah, and look what happened to that.
Eddie: … And if you think I’m going to war without one, mate, you’re mistaken.
