旅英常识 |来约一杯英式下午茶

来源:温斯顿英语 时间:2017年07月05日 上课时间:0 9:00-21:00
英式下午茶可以说是英国的国粹之一,简单的一个点心时间却展现了英国人骨子里的高傲,皇室的贵气,历史的沉淀,还有追求细节的精致。
 
下午茶起源于英国19世纪,当时的人一天一般吃两顿饭,这让闲在家的一些贵妇觉得很无聊,于是,她们邀请一些闺蜜到家里喝喝茶,吃吃饼干,这就是下午茶最初的来源。

c) Would you like a cup of char?
 
d) Would you like a cup of the black stuff?
 
 
2. It is very common in the UK to serve afternoon tea with biscuits. There is a cultural habit of taking one the biscuits and putting it into the tea very briefly, so that the biscuit absorbs some of the liquid. What verb would a British English speaker use to describe this action?

答案:1.d  2.c  3.b  4.a  5.d  6.c
 
有没有全部答对的小伙伴?如果有的话,真的棒棒哒!
 
近几年,越来越多人到英国旅行,如果有机会到那品尝下午茶,你就可以享受到西装革履的管家式的服务,满桌精致的茶点,还有细节处体现的那延绵百年的英式高贵。
 
 

英式下午茶有专门的行为礼仪,去之前,要掌握了它的正确打开方式。
 
握杯翘兰花指?不是妩媚是粗鲁!
 
你在品用下午茶时的一举一动,都是个人修养的体现。餐巾需要整齐地放在腿上,当离开房间的时候,餐巾放在自己的椅子上,这是告诉他人:我还会回来的;如果享用完,则餐巾要放在左手边。持杯的正确动作是大拇指、食指和中指轻轻握住杯柄,切不可翘起小尾指。
 
每一个杯子配着一个小杯盘。若是站着,需要一手持杯,一手持杯盘;只有坐着的时候,才可把盘放下,只拿杯子喝茶。小勺子搅动茶时,从12点方向朝着6点方向搅,不能拿着勺子在杯里不断转圈,这是一个坏习惯。
 

旅英小知识,同学们都get到了吗?
让我们一起去英国吧!
