The very best of Britishness

Tea has been a staple in Britain since the 1700s. But "afternoon tea" is more than just what is consumed; It is a great British tradition. It is basically a light meal in the late afternoon, tea is served from a delicate pot along with milk and sugar, but just tea is not enough, it is usually accompanied by scones, cupcakes, bread, butter and jam. The popularity of English afternoon tea is not restricted to Britain now, a lot of hotels and restaurants in other countries also feature the pleasant refreshment tailored to suit local tastes..[Photo/IC]
