Tea & Sympathy in Yorkshire Gold Advert

While to the casual visitor, Little Britain may seem a bastion of English tranquility, a fierce debate rages beneath the surface that, at points, threatens to tear the British expat community apart. Indeed, in epic terms worthy of the Bard, whole households are riven of this particular point of contention. But fear not, it is an argument that surges in our veins, and has divided and united Great Britain along battle lines for many years now, and shows no signs of letting up. The big question is: what’s your favorite cuppa?

Each and every member of staff at Tea & Sympathy has their own perfect brew.
