What Americans can learn from the soothing British ritual of tea time.

Yes!!  This is what tea means to me, how about you?  

My love for the beverage and its ritual began with my Grandmother.  She was an American married to my Grandfather; a proper Scot from Dundee, Scotland.  From my early childhood until my 30’s, whenever Grandma and I were together, we would stop in the afternoon to have tea.  Living in Japan and Northern England only deepened my affection for this simple, but profound, practice.  What is described in this article about tea in Britain was my experience too.  A cup of tea is so much more than just a beverage.  Cheers!
