  1. Going to an Afternoon Tea Party
  - Look at all these China silver and beautiful lilies. It feels I'm gonna having tea with the queen at Buckingham Palace. And u should have told us, this is going to be a formal tea party. So Roger and I wouldn't have come in t-shirt and jeans.
  - Oh, I didn't mean to make u feel uncomfortable about this setting. It's just that I have had those gadgets for years, but seldom use them. Don't worry! This is a casual gathering, and we're just going to have a relaxing time and a nice chat.
  - Did u buy all these from Britain? They're very beautiful.
  - I collected most of them while living in England. The China tea set was a fairy well gift from my landlady. Huh, she was a nice old English lady. We used to have afternoon tea together.
  - Do people really have afternoon tea everyday in Britain?
  - I think so! Tea is as important to British people as coffee is to Northern Americans.
  - Excuse me! The water is boiling.
  a. Brewing Tea
  - Do u need a hand?
  - Sure! Could u warm the pot for me?
  - Why do u warm the tea-pot?
  - To make sure the temperature remains high after we pour boiling water in the pot. We won't get the full flavors from the tea leaves if the water is not hot enough.
  - Em, that makes sense.
  - What kind of tea would u like? I've got a Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Orange Pekoe or would u prefer fruit and herbal tea? I can make 2 different pots if u like?
  - Do u have any decaffeinated tea! I've been trying to cut down on the intake of caffeine these days.
  - Sure! No problem! I'll make a pot of decaffeinated tea for u! I'll have Darjeeling. How much should I put into the pot? I usually use the tea bags, so the leaves don’t get everywhere.
  - Roughly one teaspoon for a cup. I prefer loose tea leaves, because they make the tea less bitter. We can use the strainer for the leaves later. Okay, help yourself to the food.
  - What did you put in these ham sandwiches, they’re good.
  - Just a touch of English mustard. Try the smaller ones, em, they’re cucumber sandwiches, typical food for English tea.
  - You have to give the recipe for the scones, oh! They’re fantastic!
  - These cream scones do taste better with some extra dried food, don’t they? Well, I think the tea is ready. Do you take milk in your tea, Roger?
  - Yes, and sugar, please.
  - How about you, Jenny?
  - I’m lack, toast intolerant, a slice of lemon will be fine.
  2. Ordering Afternoon Tea
  - Good afternoon, how many people?
  - 2, do you still serve lunch at this time? I’m sorry, lunch finished half an hour ago. Would u like to see the menu for afternoon tea?
  - What kind of food do you have for tea? I’d like to have sth. more substantial more than cake and the cookies.
  - It’s the traditional English tea; we have a sort of sandwiches, parsley baked scones, pies and a big selection of desserts.
  - That’s sounds fine with me. Well, I’m starving. Let’s just sit down and look at the menu first.
  - This way please.
  a. At the Table

  - Do you have any good deal for two very hungry people?
  - I suggest that you go for the Royal Family Tea. It comes with five choices of tea sandwiches, scones and crumpets with jam and jellies and fresh pastries and chocolate.
  - 18 dollars for the Royal treat. Ok! I’ll try it. It’ll be better for good.
  - I think I’ll have the garden café afternoon tea, coming with 3 choices of finger sandwiches, scones and tea cake.

  - Good choice! What kind of toppings would you like for the crumpets and scones? We have strawberry jam, lemon curd, cloddy cream and orange marmalade.

  - Excellent idea!
  b. After the Food and Tea Have Been Served
