cuz in america, youre thirsty, you go get a drink, but in movies and such it looks like the british hold their tea time sacred

my parents do the whole stop the world for a cup of tea thing, because my nan lives next door and shes alone pretty much all day since my grandad passed away.

so they go round there and seeher in the mornings and evenings.

but Tea-Time is Dinner-Time i believe.

I don't think we've ever had a "tea-time" where everything stops for a cup of tea.

You watch too many films.
Oh George... Oh George.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

This doesn't exist for me unless my band are practicing. Half way through we ALWAYS stop everything to drink tea.

But tea time is the time you have your evening meal too.

I make a cup of tea in the morning and when at work.


Teatime is just another name for dinner, majority of the time there's no tea involved.

That's interesting because I thought everyone in America is fat. Can anyone tell me if that's true?
#21
I ****ing HATE when people refer to a meal as tea.

Tea is a drink, you have tea-breaks because people in the UK are very fond of tea and tend to drink it over most other drinks (although frankly I find it vile)

Dinner is the meal. Not Tea, which is plainly a freakin hot brown drink brewed from leaves.

That's the stupidest fucking stereotype you idiots believe.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Well my mom jokes makes a meal of chips and beans out a tin and we take it from the kitchen. We don't even say thank you. It's like we just smell it and know its ready, I go to my room to eat it, my sister goes to hers, mom and dad go in the living room. And we're all watching separate tv's lol.

It's really not a very different concept from people drinking ****loads of coffee in the states... Just tastes better.

Tea time just refers to dinner. If we want a cup of tea we go drink one, we don't drop whatever we are doing and run off towards the nearest kettle, foaming at the mouth...

What do you mean by "tea time?" If you mean a time to eat supper - then definitely not, I have supper at eight o'clock, not five. But "tea time," so you drink tea, eat biscuits and cakes, then definitely YES. I have tea every single day, with breakfast - but mainly at "tea time," which is between 3:30 and 5:30.

Tea time = tea drinking.

Tea time =/= supper.

My housemates and I drink a LOT of tea, probably about 10 cups a day each. I also go to friend's houses just to have a cup of tea and a chat (and maybe a biscuit, if they have any).

It's one of the few, true English stereotypes. Contrary to popular belief we don't have bad teeth, we don't say things like "tally pip, old bean", and we don't wear bowler hats (except on Bowler's Day which happens on the day before the summer and winter equinox)

It's too late, they already know. There's no point hiding it anymore.

Fingers crossed they won't find out about that other thing we always do.

You know, that thing... Yeah, that's the one

If yer from't north, "tea" 's yer evenin' meal.

Otherwise, no, and we probably never did. Except the very rich, who never do any work and sit around all day admiring artwork.

It could also vary a lot with your regional and class background. For such a small place, the UK is very varied.
