More Tea Please, We're Sherlocked



TEA




A short, tongue-in-cheek guide to the British national obsession: TEA! In answer to several questions I have received over the last three weeks about Sherlock and this beverage.


I explore:



  • why everyone in Sherlock is obsessed with tea.

  • "tea" is more than just a drink: it's also the word used for the evening meal or a certain type of afternoon meal.

  • the different ways of drinking tea in the UK

  • how to write a good Sherlock fanfiction featuring this glorious brew.


But our journey into the amazing world of tea does not actually start with tea, it starts in the 17th century with a bean from the new world because no one loved coffee like the British.
