Everyone knows that tea is the most populardrink in Britain. It's even more popular than coffee, which is favoured throughout Europe and America.
The Dutch brought the first tea to Europein 1610. But it was not until 1658 that the first advertisement for tea appeared in a London newspaper. At that time a pound of the cheapest tea cos taboutone-third of a skilled worker's weekly wages. Tea was guarded by the lady of the house and kept in special containers, of ten with a lock and carefully do ledout by the teaspoon.

Our lesson is over. I think we have had a very interesting Tea Party. Thank you for the food you have treated us and for the stories you have told.
From ancient timesChinese wisdom came to us with tea ceremonies . During these beautiful rituals , having a deep philosophical meaning , people not only enjoy the aroma and taste of fine tea , but remove from the hustle and feel the peace and quiet , find harmony with oneself and the world .
Wedgwood china - British ceramics factory Wedgwood, strong tea, cucumber sandwiches and scones with raisins - all these elements of a traditional English tea ceremony.And it's not just the tea party, it's a whole philosophy .
The average Englishman drink about six cups of tea a day. In the daytime tea schedule is as follows. About six o'clock in the morning the whole country is drinking fresh morning tea. But that's not breakfast. The first meal and again tea, English Breakfast, occurs at eight o'clock . With an hour to two days in the life of cities and towns freezes - are closed institutions , stops work in the factories. This lunchtime, when every self-respecting Englishman drinking a nice cup of tea - "a nice cup of tea ." The second title this break - tea break. And finally – the traditional five - o - clock tea.
To carry out the English tea ceremony needs a certain way served tea table, tea, tea and snacks ability to cope with drinking tea in the process .
Solid(plane) tablecloth (or small and not very bright pattern ) , better white . Small vase of flowers .better living and white. Knife and fork for every tea drinker . Napkins ( paper possible , in the same tone with a tablecloth ) . Tea pairs , kettle with tea (can be one at all or individual) , a jug of boiling water , milk jug with milk or cream . Strainer(ситечко) and stand under the strainer . Sugar bowl with refined ( ideally - with white and brown ) . Teaspoons .Snacks for tea, of course, served on dessert plates and should be eaten with fork and knife . All utensils(посуда) , of course, should be one of the service , porcelain and of white or white-and- bluecolour. And we still need a quilted or wool cover on a teapot - a distant relative of our tea women .It is called tea-cosy.
For classical European tea bowls are not suitable . It is interestingly, the idea to attach the handle to the piala and thereby make her now all familiar cup belongs to the British. At the beginning of the XVIII century Chinese porcelain manufacturers commissioned by the British began to make a cup with a handle A little later fastidious(привередливые)British demanded to make a saucer for each cup to drop hot tea is not dropped on his knees and tablecloth.
Snacks for tea
English tea cakes, on the one hand , nothing extraordinary in itself is not . One requirement : snacks should be simple. Because if baking is a very feature-rich.
Teacakes ( toasted buns with raisins ) with salted butter .
Gingerbread cakes arevery well set off the taste of the tea .
Scone ( scones with raisins ), which was cut in half and smear with jam and cream .
Sandwiches ( maybe someone does not like sweet or do not eat it for other reasons) . Bread for such small sandwiches cut into very thin slices . Hot sandwiches for tea are served very rare - mostly in the cold .
Sandwiches should be light and delicate : lettuce , rolled on a thin slice of bread , tomato and cucumber, sliced slices on a round piece of bread , cream cheese or pieces of crab meat on toast - that's the most typical kinds of sandwiches supplied to tea .
Tea ceremony classic English style assumes that the table is fed milk in the milkman .
Tea is made based on the fact that the plates it will not be diluted(розбавляться) with boiling water. That is per adult drinker maker laid one teaspoon of tea leaves ( or bag ) . If it is a very large pot - five or six - you can add one more spoonful at all. It is required 3 or 5 minutes for tea should be ready (sometimes to control the time used hourglass - it's beautiful ). And right after that topped the kettle with boiling water from the jug. And tea is served tea-cosy - not to cool down .
Along with light snacks and refined teas made to the table " feeding " elegant conversation. On this basis, keeps the whole philosophy of the English tea ceremony.
