Coffee came to Britain before tea did. Both were brought to Britain by the British and the Dutch East India Companies. Tea arrived in the 17th Century A.D while coffee was introduced in Britain in the 16th Century A.D. Coffee first came from Turkey while the first tea in Britain came from China. Before tea came to Britain, coffee was popular among the masses and was drunk in Coffee Houses. . When tea was first presented to Charles II, his wife Catherine of Braganza fell in love with it. She patronised tea and made it popular at the social gatherings. The practice soon spread to the people and replaced coffee as the most popular drink. At first, green tea was drunk, which soon got replaced by black tea. The British also introduced a new style of tea-drinking by adding milk and sugar. It also goes to the credit of British that tea got transformed into a daily drink from an occasional medicinal drink. . Tea became popular in Britain for other reasons, too. The workers would have them during their breaks, which soon came to be known as tea-break. Families and friends would assemble in the afternoon to snack between lunch and dinner. Tea soon became in integral component of these gatherings called ‘afternoon tea’. The weather, too, contributed to the popularity of tea. It was (and still is ) delightful for the British to have a cup of tea in a gloomy or cold day, which outnumber(ed ) sunny days. Finally, tea was believed to be good for health. For some reason, coffee could not earn this distinction. . The word ‘tea’ was also a British invention. The original Chinese word ‘Tcha’ went from ‘Tay’ to ‘Tee’ till the British started to spell it as ‘Tea’. Unlike the popular belief, tea was brought from China to India by the British and not introduced in Britain through India. Tea may have first started in China but the British made it a famous drink throughout the world. No doubt, the British love tea. It is, afterall, their drink as the world knows it today. #british #uk #unitedkingdom #england #scotland #wales #northernireland #tea #teaparty #drinkingtea #britishtea #britishculture #charlesii #tea #catherine #greatbritain #britain #funfacts #info #brits #coffee #royals

Reviewing movies with powerful #women characters with #vengeance in their bloodline. @thenightingalefilm Available on #netflix It’s instructive to point out that The Nightingale is not for the faint of heart. There’s horrific violence abound; at one point early on, a rapist violates his victim while her baby screams in his ear. But in no way is this powerhouse another treatment of male violence filtered through an exploitaive male gaze. In her second film, after 2014’s haunting The Babadook, Australian writer-director Jennifer Kent creates a woman’s revenge tale fueled by a righteous anger at the evil men do. There’s not a whit of audience coddling. You’ve been warned. Set in the harsh 1825 Tasmanian Outback, the film stars #aislingfranciosi — the Italian-Irish actress best known as Game of Thrones‘ Lyanna Stark — as Clare, a 21-year-old Irish #convict . She’s been sent to this remote penal colony of Van Diemen’s Land and enslaved by Lieutenant Hawkins ( #samclaflin ), a #british officer and boot-and-polish #sadist . His slow rise in the ranks is a consistent sore point. So he takes out his frustration by brutalizing those in his charge, from underlings to prisoners. That most definitely includes Claire. At first, Hawkins is content to make the young woman his personal songbird, given that Clare sings like a nightingale while she serves him food and drink. And then the screaming starts. Claflin, the blond dreamboat Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games series, plays this colonial monster without dropping his charm and good looks, which makes him doubly scary. It’s a bold gamble of a performance that pays off. Hawkins wears a surface sanity in public; he desperately wants that promotion. And it’s Clare’s hope that the pressure will persuade him to set her free, along with her husband Aidan (Michael Sheasby ), a fellow convict, and their infant daughter. When her dream of liberation is #brutally squashed, Clare vows #revenge . That’s when Kent and the splendid #cinematographer Radek Ladczuk (shooting in the square-shaped, old-school Academy ratio ) build a #historical story of vengeance that shakes you to your core. #thenightingale #violent #disturbing #provoking

One of the few cars that you would be satisfied with 80hp. Not knowing a Series 2 could be very attractive in this kinda mismatched color too. 📸 @schoolofdreamshk #lotuseuropa #lotuseuropas2 #lotus #british #colinchapman #lightweight #amazingcars247 #carsofinstagram #carspotting #quirkycarsofhk #hongkong

Leave a 💜 If you could see yourself living in this perfect white cottage in the middle of a Lavender field in the Cotswolds! Love this by @chris_sesta_photography I think, with gentle persuasion, I could just about agree to that. The smell must be absolutely wonderful! Plus, don't forget, the native🐝 in England are very calm. You won't get stung unless you tickle their fuzzy cheeks too hard History states that the Romans first brought lavender here to England. With it’s all round healing qualities making it the first choice for many ailments, and one of the first natural antiseptics. During the Great Plague of the 17th century people would tie lavender bunches to their wrists to guard against infection This is @timholt wishing you a wonderful Saturday! 🇬🇧 To be featured, follow and tag us! ‘Ta! 🇬🇧
