It's Tea time in England

Tea in general
Advantages: Taste, variety
I absolutely love a cup of tea. It is a sort of phenomenon in England for several reasons:
It has its own unique taste that is like nothing like anything else. Everyone has their own way of doing it: with milk, without milk, with sugar or without. There are also orders of doing everything. For me, I always put the tea in the pot, then the sugar in the mug, then the tea in the mug, and lastly the cold milk.
Because tea is produced right around the globe, you get such a variety of tastes from the weak earl's grey to the fantastic Ceylon tea (from Sri Lanka)
It's such a great image: English man sipping cup of tea. In asterix and obelix, the famous french B.D, they portray the English in one book as having a magic potion which is tea. It is this potion that makes them undefeatable!
There are always a couple of problems though:
Tea sometimes stains the teeth yellow, and if you take sugar, you can find yourself falling into the familiar trap of tooth rotting.
My overall opinion~~
Of course I couldn't work without tea. It helps me function in the morning... typically english.
Summary: Its just part of the regime isn't it....
