Afternoon Tea, the Culture of England

In my image, English people like to drink tea. Tea is prepared in most homes and particularly they drink in the afternoon. Afternoon tea is a culture that started from Britain. They drink tea with snacks and cake, and talk with many people.

But in Japan, people work busily and there is no time to enjoy afternoon tea. I think that Japanese workers should enjoy afternoon tea like English people, because they work hard too much.

I think that afternoon tea is a very graceful, wonderful culture.

Hi, i also love the culture of Japan and I'm from England :-) People do drink a lot of tea in England , but it is mostly women who drink it on nice tea sets but still this is very true!

Only Posh People...
by: Ben from England

Only posh people drink afternoon tea in the way I think you imagine. Most people just drink tea and milk out of a coffee cup with some biscuits, and drink it whenever they feel like. I usually have one in the morning and one in the afternoon when I get home.

Afternoon (iced lemon) tea
by: Gary Wolff

What a delightful story, Yasuaki, and such a mouth-watering picture.

Since it's now already a hot muggy summer afternoon in Japan, you have motivated me to go enjoy some nice afternoon (iced lemon) tea. :-)

Thanks for your nice story...
