fox observes that in truth, alongside itschemical properties, tea is an infallible social space-filler. After havingdetailed the cultural meanings behind different methods of tea preparation, Foxwrites, Tea-making is the perfect displacement activity: whenever theEnglish feel awkward or uncomfortable in a social situation (that is, almostall the time), they make tea.

Its also interestingto note that some of the molecules involved in the flavour of teas likelyevolved as defenses against being eaten by birds, insects and other creatures.That is somewhat ironic, given how vigorously we humans seek it out and howmany social meanings weve attached to it.

Tea or coffee. Sales of tea have been falling in the UK while sales of coffee have been increasing. About 47% of adults now prefer coffee.
