The "More tea?" series was something I did with great enthusiasm, imagining a conversation with a British lady on the subject “Life hurts.” I had been deeply hurt by someone and was excising the pain in this manner. I ended up quite relaxed and enjoying my new series, until I googled the whole thing (the “More tea” thing) and learned that there’s a “More tea, vicar?” theme in British English pop culture, having to do with a vicar who pays you a visit and ends up making various faux-pas.
How we are baffled when we engage with another culture! I thought the “More tea?” question was rather anodyne, a question that could apply to various social situations in polite society in the UK, and yet when I looked it up I learned that “More tea, vicar?” had all but hijacked this phrase. Moreover, of all social gaffes it tried to cover, it has become associated with an old, flatulent vicar.
But, anyway, these gifts are intended to be fun comments a tea lover would enjoy, so if there's more to the story than a simple question, a story, and the love of tea, so much the better!
