Abstract

The essay means to explore the presence of tea in English culture and literature from the second half of the 17th century, when it started to be imported in England, to the 21st century. In particular, the essay deals with the writers who have described the 5 0’clock tea ceremony in their works, and with the ways tea is present both in films, TV series and idiomatic sayings. The essay explains also how both high tea and low tea have shaped Brits’ everyday life and have become relevant British symbols.
