Stephen Colbert does his best British impersonation in Tea & Sympathy

Our humble little teashop received a lot of attention in the weeks leading up to the Royal wedding. Not a day went by without a line of journalists waiting eagerly to take photos, ask questions, or film features on cake baking, tea drinking, and all manner of other apparently British pursuits.

One of our favorite pieces to result from this was Stephen Colbert’s exceptionally funny piece on British etiquette. He brought along British historian and Royal biographer Hugo Vickers in a bid to refine his upper crust credentials. Unfortunately, we don’t think poor Mr Vickers knew what he was letting himself in for as Colbert’s merciless humor was soon on full display. This clip of his British impersonation had us in stitches!
