One of my favorite breakfast teas, Thile and Bünting green Bands, although these are something hard to get outside of Deutschlands''Ok TV-shows as we all know don’t always reveal the truth about every day live. But I think for sure some Britains have Tea Time others don’t.
Some have cream tea, with scones and clotted cream. And for shure some use milk and sugar, some don’t and yes they might do it one day and skip it another day. Drinking tea is at least such an individual thing, than smoking pipes.
When it comes to questions wether British people drink it with cream or not, I don’t know.
I like it a lot, but I am a German. There’s is a thing in the north of Germany called “Ostfriesen-Tee”. It’s a strong, black, almost malty tasting tea blend with assorted Indian Assam teas. And they use to drink that strong hot brew with some rock candy and … cream. It’s a speciality. And it tastes great, especially when it’s cold outside.
