A very common hot drink that comes from india and sorrounding areas. It is made by taking the leaves from a tea bush and boiling them. this means that such things as Peppermint "tea" or Apple "tea" are in fact not teas they just share the name ( like how the americans stole football) The reason tea is not as popular in american i mostly due to the boston tea part after which the coffee became the norm. Although people often connect england with tea it is actually ireland that drinks the most tea (as well as the most beer). alot of people can be put off by tea if when the first try it probably becaue it is made wrong. most people let it sit for too long after about 5 minutes the leaf releases tannins making a bitter taste. also far to many people have an overdose of milk and sugar and on top of that they do not properly add it. milk should always be warmed then have the tea added to it other wise the milk would be scalded. the milk tastes foul so to compensate for the poor tast more milk is added and then all flavour is lost and people are left with the wrong impression
-Tea should be served in a cup not a mug
-Iced Tea generally has nothing to do with tea and will often scew statistics

The only Rival to a good cup of tea i a good cup of guinness, and like tea guinness can not just be poured to be good it should take 119 sec but that is a different story.
A drug stereotypically popular in England. Comes from India or China. Sold in brightly coloured boxes advertising its healthy properties. Highly addictive. Massive advertising campaigns on TV and billboards.
Responsible for the Britiah Empire, but superceded by coffee in the American Empire, due to coffee's more intense hit. Universally drunk by English people.
The best way to drink it is in a mug, with milk and two sugars. Some people only have one, but that's just being in denial. Two sugars or none, that's my motto. Or even worse, one and a half. Come on, who are you fooling? Some people get really kinky and drink it BLACK. NO milk, NO sugar, NO hope. No way. Simply Wrong.
I would recommend undertaking tea addiction. Luckily it is available at every corner store, at very reasonable prices. You may have seen adverts on TV, e.g. "Yorkshire Tea.. the way tea USED to be." Yeah, back in the days before the evil American Empire. When it was the British Empire instead.Tea is one of the best things ever, I love it. I'm drinking it now.
"Put the kettle on!"
"How many sugars?"
"How do you take it?" (smirk)
"Don't drink that stuff, it's addictive." - actually, nobody ever says that.

Brit 2: Bring it on. Milk, two sugars, and put it in a mug, not one of those girlie cups on saucers. Think Man Tea.
