Her chest area seems a little odd, but other than that this is great.

english tea...all come from India
Reply
:iconasarella:
Asarella Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
Well arent you informative.....
Most English teas sold are blends, made from as many as 35 different varieties of tea leaves, which can come from China, India, Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) or Africa. Each tea company composes its own blends, which become trade secrets, while many establishments that sell or serve tea devise their own "house blends."
The most popular tea blend in Britain, English Breakfast, was first devised by a tea master by the name of Drysdale in Edinburgh in the latter part of the 19th century. Because of the heaviness of the typical breakfast, Drysdale saw the need for a strong tea blend to accompany the meal. He named his blend "Breakfast Tea." Queen Victoria, when in residence at Balmoral in Scotland, purchased it. London tea merchants saw the marketing benefits and began producing their own blends, adding the word "English" to the name. English Breakfast teas are usually composed of black teas, including Keemun from China and Assam and Ceylon varieties. Other versions soon followed, such as Irish and Scottish Breakfast teas. These tend to have a higher proportion of Assam teas; Irish Breakfast teas are generally the strongest, while Scottish Breakfast teas use specific varieties to produce a "malty" or "oaky" taste.
What matters is why it is called "English Tea" not where it comes from. Thats what the picture is about. Its lovely <3

The girl is not British and you brought up a completely unrelated war because she was right and you were wrong.
I mean really that is like me getting mad at you because Finland didn't help America in the war in Iraq.

brits PROMISED to send help, they promise us that. did we get it? NO.
what we got was apology when war was over.

we DIDN'T promise help to america and you WON'T be getting help because of that.
it's 2 different things you know.

and I DIDN'T bring up the war because of that reason. reason is that brits generally are arrogant against peoples that are from other countries. is it some kind of sign from superiority that they drink water where is been dried stuff?
I think not, I can drink that stuff and still not feel superiority to others.

:iconaspecialkindofstupid:
Well THIS girl is American, and was just trying to explain why you were wrong. Even if she WAS British it's not she would have anything to do with her country breaking a promise, that's not the civilians responsibility, it's the governments. If you have a problem with the British government start sending some letters because accusing random Americans of being British coward just makes you look insane.

Yeah, that's just how people from super countries tend to act, better get used to it.
Sure the upper class of British are arrogant sometimes, but hell, so are upper class/middle class Americans, that's rich people. But just because the bastards are the ones you hear about doesn't mean they don't have normal working class citizens who have a normal amount of pride.

And seriously, the government probably bailed because who really WANTS to enter a war with Russia?
The government looks out for their country first, promise or no, that's just the sad truth of politics.

guess you are right, but I don't agree Britain to be super country. I mean it's smaller than ours and can small country become super country? not in my books.
I can understand that class thing, but we don't use it here. we don't have it. we are all same. you can't come and kick some worker around cos you would be better than he is.

and we DID want to start war with Soviet Union.
we even caused them multiple times bigger loses than they did to us.

First off, I am not British. Second, the tea information didnt come from wikipedia. Thirdly, your avtar picture and username can not protect you in the real world. Low I.Q. Is easy to recognize. If attacking me helps you feel like somene important onthe internet, so be it. As for off it, Good luck.

ok just because theyre right and you arent as right as they are (not saying youre wrong because yes SOME tea does come from india but not all) doesnt mean you can bitch about some completely unrelated war. and how does the fact that theyre educating you on something you clearly dont know make them a smart ass and them a damn brit that thinks theyre all high and mighty? it doesnt, it hardly makes sense :P

not trying to start a war, just saying that youre the one in the wrong here :/

FoodStamps23 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
no they arent shitbags, its like how us americans think the french are snobby and arrogant, they arent, its just what they think is formal is different.

my mouth will stay open for the pure fact that you are still being a hopepless little fucker trying to act high and mighty and sticking by your beliefs but really your beliefs about the brits are way off.

yes they can be assholes at times (learnedd from my uncles year long liveing spree in london) but some are very nice.

you are just a bully and a shitty fucking asshole that has no idea how to be a decent peice of shit and stay quiet and keep your little hatreds to yourself.

I maybe generalize, but you don't have to start yelling to me about it.
I have damn good reason to hate them, and I always stand behind my words.
if you want to hate me because of that it's fine for me.

do not post back I had enough already
