T is for...

Tea. After living in England, I discovered that the stereotype of British people loving tea is totally accurate. We drank tea constantly. Our days were measured by intervals between cups of tea. It was marvelous. Ever since I came home, everyone's go-to gift for me is tea. I'm not complaining, mind you, I love a nice cup of Earl Grey. Before I lived in Bristol, my grandmother took me to England and we went to High Tea at Harrods. I still remember the little old ladies in hats and gloves sipping tea and eating dainty cucumber sandwiches from the three-tiered silver trays.
