Callie: Because like tea, cakes come in all different forms and flavours. There's almost a cake for every occasional. :)

I think tea is... social glue for we brits. We make some a cup when they visit, we 'put the kettle on' in times of crisis: that old and conforting routine of fill, boil, mash and pour.

As you say, tea doesn't have to have milk in it. It's personal taste at the end of the day. Of late I've switched to herbal or natural 'de caff' brews... simple because to much of the wonderful stuff sends me a bit loopy :D

ps: No need to apologise... I'll let you off if you treat your friend to a cake :D

So, Lynn, if tea powers Britain, what is it with cakes? All of my dear friends in England and other parts of the UK seem to mention cake all of the time. I mean, I like cake too (you know, a big piece of chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting and, perhaps, birthday candles on top), but I don't dwell on it! Really, I am just jealous, I guess.

I do drink tea. My best friend (in my male life) is a Brit. He has tried and tried to get me to drink Earl Grey the time-proven way of the English, but I just can't do milk in my tea. It must be black. What's with the milk? We in the colonies just don't do it that way.

And, I suppose that chai tea that I so love is just too California?

Sorry I am so late in commenting.

I'm trying to come to terms with the idea of the coffee machine being broken. That bought me out in cold sweats!...

(Penny: One of my hats in the office is software developer - and I can say that no - we do not work without that caffine bomb...)

Oh - email is the curse of modern office life. And then there's the spam of course... We really need the tea to keep going.
And coffee. Don't forget the coffee. Our office coffee machine broke recently and the software team immediately registered a 'critical' all-work-stops bug in the Bugzilla system. They were only half joking!

Tea indeed. A beverage of great consequence no doubt and the very first thing to pass my lips each day. Well, sometimes a little profanity passes my lips first when toe is stubbed in a still dark bedroom, but there we are.

Long live tea.

And what exactly is this email thing that people seem quite chatty about?

A few years ago one of the Civil Service departments experimented with a ban on sending emails on a Monday, so people could try to clear the weekend backlog, and deal with the deluge of calls that always came from customers who had been waiting since Friday to speak to someone.

It lasted a week. :)
