"Tea? But it's food!?" United Kingdom Local Custom Tip by Sjalen

United Kingdom Local Customs: 340 reviews and 354 photos

Yes, you will find that "tea" is an expression used for supper as well. When a child is asked to finish her tea, we're not talking a cuppa, but a meal. "What shall we have for tea?" is not a question of Earl grey versus lapsang but about what to eat. :-)
