Lazy afternoon chats with housemates over a nice cup of tea are simply wonderful weekend pastimes. Of course, tea here in the UK can also mean dinner. If someone has invited you round for tea they could mean a meal. That caught me by surprise at first. But I think I like the way tea is a part of the culture here. Tea is food and drink. It is comfortable and comforting. Tea is friendly. Tea belongs everywhere, even in the workplace. And you know what? I think I'll keep it. I like having a nice cuppa every now and then.
