A cup of tea.

Britain is a tea-drinking nation. Every day they drink 165 million cups of tea. Each year about 144 thousand tons of tea are imported.
Tea in Britain is traditionally made in a china teapot, adding one spoonful of tea per person and one for the pot. Most Britons like their tea strong and dark, but with a lot of milk.

Before dinner  on a Sunday  you can take ‘high tea’: a kind of snack with tea sandwiches and cakes .
