Tea And Parties

"...what I feel we ought to do at this juncture is to dash off somewhere where it's quiet and there aren't so many houses dancing the 'Blue Danube' and shove some tea into ourselves. And over the pot and muffins I shall have something very important to say to you."

P.G. Wodehouse, 'The Amazing Hat Mystery', Young Men In Spats (1936)

John Fowles described tea as
"the immemorial English answer to all the major crises of existence"
in his short story "Poor Koko" which appeared in his book "The Ebony Tower" (1974).
