It’s a Scorcher

But I am NOT complaining. I’m just saying: It’s hot.

And in England…when the heat is on…you sit down and have a nice cup of tea.

Tea for One

An English person will tell you that they are “gasping for a cup of tea” on the hottest day of the year. It’s the only thing that will do in times of extreme heat — as well as extreme cold or when under stress or if you feel happy or sad or tired or excited. During good times and bad…a cup of tea takes care of many things.

Now you know.

  1. But not iced tea? That’s what quenches my thirst on a scorcher. We call it sun tea because we leave it to brew out on the deck. Last week the place where my mum lives had a tea party that included scones. She smuggled a couple out to us. They were delicious!

  2. How hot could it really be if an Englishman craves tea? Here in Florida it hasn’t been nearly as hot as you would think. Thunder storms have been keeping the heat down. What we crave in these times is vodka. Hot, cold, it’s the vodka.
