Getting cultural stereotypes so very wrong

Aggh, this cannot have been made by anyone who has even the remotest clue about the English. For a start, in recent years, coffee has overtaken tea as the number one drink.

Secondly, we don’t often say the word beverage, unless we’re emulating our colonial cousins. And then not always nicely.

And thirdly, whilst drinking tea may well be required by law (actually, while there are a lot of stupid laws in England, this isn’t one of them), the act of enjoyment certainly isn’t. As anyone who’s ever lived here will know, it feels like there’s a law against that! Smile

BTW, with the exception of some unusual or herbal brews, I HATE tea.
