HOW to make the perfect cup of tea? It’s a question that has kept the English busy for centuries. According to English writer George Orwell, there are 11 rules for perfect tea making. Orwell, who wrote an essay on the subject, believed that tea was essential (必要的) to civilization.

If so, then the UK must be one of the most civilized (文明的) countries in the world, as the English love drinking tea. And as China is a tea-drinking nation itself, it’s an enthusiasm (热情) that most Chinese can understand.

Nevertheless, Chinese and English tea drinking practices are very different. The number one difference is that the English drink their tea with milk. Although green tea is growing in popularity in Britain for its health benefits, it is not widely drunk. However, most Brits understand enough about Chinese tea culture to know that it’s drunk without milk.

Exactly how you add milk to tea is a fiercely (激烈地) debated topic in the UK. Many people believe that the milk should be poured into the cup before the tea. However, just as many people believe that the milk should be added after the tea is poured, so you can better measure how strong a cup of tea you want. But according to British scientists, who carried out a study in 2003, it is best to add milk first, as the milk will gradually cool the tea, so stopping the milk from possibly clumping (结块).

A Chinese visitor to Britain might be surprised at the wide variety of teas available in most supermarkets. While you might not be able to find your preferred type of green tea you can choose between Indian teas like Assam, herbal flower teas such as camomile (甘菊) and peppermint (薄荷), and popular blended (混合的) black teas such as English Breakfast.
