Tea is the main hot drink in England. It has become such an integral part of our culture that the traditional afternoon "cuppa" is now a British institution, and it is hard to imagine life without it! When it was first introduced in the 17th century, it was a luxury that only the rich could afford, but now it is popular and affordable for all because of its popularity. Medicine has also recently discovered that tea has many health-like properties.
There are a variety of teas to choose from, but black tea is mainly consumed in the UK, such as Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon or their mixtures. Most English teas are served with milk, but some can be unmilked, such as Earl's Tea and Green Tea.
