The English and Tea
Personally, I love English or British food, but many people often complain about their ideas about cuisine…
What expertise people can NEVER take away from the English is their tea!
(You might have seen my posts about my English Nanny and PG Tips! LOL)
They take their tea drinking very seriously…There are specific rules and times they sit down to have tea! It’s an important thread in the quilt of their existence.
I absolutely love tea and this appreciation started with my English nanny, Doreen.
The thing is, in addition, you can’t simply have tea without enjoying a “bickie” or biscuit. So, be sure you stock up on Christmas biscuits because ’tis the season!
The English are experts in tasty treats like that, namely shortbreads are my favorite.
Another thing my nanny always made sure of was that there were tasty candies around the house.
That may be why we love to make toffee and fudge this time of year.
So, this was intensified around the Holidays. So, in English spirit, break out your Christmas candy and enjoy them! Don’t save them for a special occassion – it is the most precious of occassions!
