Us Brits do like our tea! I cannot begin my morning without a cup of tea and at the weekend I make myself a large pot to kick start the weekend. I even keep a load of tea bags at work to get me through the working day. So why are us Brits obsessed with tea? I actually cannot answer this. All I know is that the Brits are known for enjoying a cup of tea at least twice a day. Just as Europeans love their coffee and fill up coffee shops us Brits pile into cafes and order a pot or cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, coffee houses are also packed out in the UK but you can still always get a cup of tea. It is often served with milk and sugar (for those sugar lovers).
All I can say on this subject is that just like other British expats I make sure I am fully stocked up with tea bags when in Germany. I will be spending this Easter weekend with a pot of tea and a few baking treats. Happy Easter!
