English tea is what most people picture when they think about tea. When someone mentions “having tea” what generally comes to mind is ladies gathered around a table having tea, sandwiches, and scones. This is the tea-time tradition that started in Europe a long time ago, and survives to this day.
There are many different types of English tea that a lot of people still enjoy drinking. Names like “Earl Gray” and “Darjeeling” still conjure images of refinement and social gatherings. These teas are not name brands; they are types of tea, and you can find many tea makers that have their own versions of these.
If you want to have your own English tea party, there are a lot of places where you can find everything you need to do that. The sets can be found in many kitchen supply and home stores. You can also find them in tea shops, along with the type of tea you want to serve.
