According to English tea etiquette, in no event it is impossible
to be limited to one grade of tea. Usually on a choice 8-10 grades of tea are offered. The tea little table settles down in a drawing room, at a fireplace. The cloth is preferable monophonic, white or dark blue.
For carrying out of ceremony with tea, a jug with boiled
water, dessert plateaus tea pairs, a teapot will be necessary for snack, a knife and a plug for each visitor, teaspoons, a sugar bowl with lumpy sugar, nippers for sugar and a woolen cover for a teapot with tea.
All utensils should be from one service. Snack move on a
table at once, before submission of tea, but it is obligatory at presence of visitors. By tradition, to afternoon tea bread, salty oil(butter), fresh cucumbers and tomatoes, eggs, toasts with cinnamon, almond cookies, jams, biscuits, rolls, cakes and pies submit.
And, certainly, the most known snack in the world – sandwiches.
Lord John Sendvichu posesses idea of preparation of sandwiches from two slices of bread with a stuffing from a ham, chocolate or jam in the middle. In such kind to warm up and submit to a table the sandwich it is much more convenient.
The lemon cut by segments, moves on a separate plateau and
sugar does not fall down. Englishmen with a lemon name tea « Russian tea ». A lemon add in tea with the maintenance(contents) of a bergamot and the Chinese green teas. The trickiest question in English tea drinking – tea in milk or milk in tea.
By ancient tradition, all over again pour milk (a quarter of
a cup), and then already made tea. It is considered, what exactly in such sequence both components mix up is better. Under other version, Englishmen were afraid for dear(expensive) porcelain and consequently in it(him) did not pour at once hot tea.
First prepare for a brewing teapot, rinse with its(his) water (90-95
degrees). Then in a teapot fall asleep tea leaves – 1 teaspoon on one drinking. All is filled in with boiled water for 3-5 minutes: for this time tea can open all the advantages – radio oils(butters) and tannin all over again are liberated, then there is a caffeine and that tart taste.
The present(true) tea at once spill on cups and at once
add in a teapot boiled water from a jug. Englishmen drink only hot tea. English tea drinking, as well as any ceremony, does not suffer(bear) vanity. All here is called for a maximum of pleasant sensations: and from the refined taste of tea, and from dialogue in the pleasant company.
In England tea drink with milk! While tea is insisted, in
well hot cups pour warm, but not boiled milk on 2-3 teaspoons, and then in milk pour tea. Englishmen tea drink three times a day and during strictly certain time: in the morning at breakfast, at 13 o'clock behind lunch and (at 17 o'clock).
The most favourite tea drinking – five-hour. At this time it
is usual at somebody at home old friends and friends gather. From public places tea drinking has gradually moved to houses, in families and became favourite pastime. Having 59 million person of the population, Englishmen daily drink 165 million mugs of tea. 86 % of mugs of tea are drunk at home.
