Today we’ll take the new theme: “Tea traditions of England. Serving tea table”
- Traditionally the English drink tea six or seven times a day: in bed, at breakfast, at lunch, during the day and at 5 o'clock. Why is tea drinking so popular? Let's try to answer to this question.
In the 1662 Prince Charles II married the Portuguese princess, Catherine of Braganza, who brought to the court the habit of drinking tea.
Firstly tea had the success among aristocracy, and then among other English citizens. The popularity of tea was formed slowly but forever.
Nowadays the English usually drink tea with milk and sometimes with sugar in a mug.
They like strong tea.

Text: English tea traditions
Before the British began to enjoy tea, they took two main meals daily: breakfast and dinner.
By the 18th century, the upper and middle classes gravitated from their noontime meal to an evening meal served at a fashionable late hour, with tea served between. By 1700 (17 hundred), more than 500 coffee houses in London were brewing and serving tea.
Tea drinking in England became even more popular during the reign of Queen Anna from 1665 to 1704.
The queen chooses tea over the traditional ale as her morning beverage and many followed her lead.
The pinky is slightly titled upward when holding a tea cup as a graceful way to avoid spills. A tea drinker never leaves a tea spoon in a tea cup; it is placed it to the right of the saucer. The tea cup should never be held in the air when not drinking.
Milk, not cream, is served with tea. Cream is heavy and inhibits the true taste of the tea. The milk should be added after the tea is poured in the cup.
Afternoon tea is classified in three ways: cream tea, which includes tea, jam and scones; light tea, which includes tea, scones and sweets; and full tea, which includes tea, savories, scones, sweets and desserts. Traditional tea time is between 3 and 5 o’clock.
High tea consists of a full meal of meat, bread, side dishes, dessert and tea. It is most usually the main meal of the day.
