A cup of tea!
Чай в Англии – больше, чем чай. Традиции его пития соблюдают и королева, и простые британцы.
Это особая культура – от заваривания до употребления; у нее много приверженцев и далеко за пределами острова. Знаменитый five o’clock tea уже давно не нуждается в переводе. Я приглашаю Вас поделиться своим материалом по теме "Англичане и Чай". Видеоматериалы будут полезны для проведения внеклассных мероприятий, уроков о традициях Британцев, также к празднованию Международного дня чая (15 декабря)!

High Tea is often a misnomer. Most people refer to afternoon tea as high tea because they think it sounds regal and lofty, when in all actuality, high tea, or "meat tea" is dinner. High tea, in Britain, at any rate, tends to be on the heavier side. American hotels and tea rooms, on the other hand, continue to misunderstand and offer tidbits of fancy pastries and cakes on delicate china when they offer a "high tea."

Afternoon tea (because it was usually taken in the late afternoon) is also called "low tea" because it was usually taken in a sitting room or withdrawing room where low tables (like a coffee table) were placed near sofas or chairs generally in a large withdrawing room. There are three basic types of Afternoon, or Low Tea:

Cream Tea - Tea, scones, jam and cream

Light Tea - Tea, scones and sweets

Full Tea - Tea, savories, scones, sweets and dessert

In England, the traditional time for tea was four or five o'clock and no one stayed after seven o'clock. Most tea rooms today serve tea from three to five o'clock. The menu has also changed from tea, bread, butter and cakes, to include three particular courses served specifically in this order:

Savories - Tiny sandwiches or appetizers

Scones - Served with jam and Devonshire or clotted cream

Pastries - Cakes, cookies, shortbread and sweets
