Tea is barely appreciated in the UK.? Britons have been one of the world’s greatest tea consumers for nearly 400 years. According to historians, it was the Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza that brought tea-drinking to the English royal court. Initially, the beverage was cherished among the aristocracy, but the trend soon spread beyond affluent elite circles to the middle classes and eventually even the poor could savour the delights of tea. The idea of five o’clock tea originated in 1840s when the wife of the seventh Duke of Bedford began inviting her friends to have nothing more than idle tittle-tattle. That elaborate social occasion quickly became widespread and thousands of the British fell in love with different types of tea. These days, it is estimated that 165 million cups are drunk in the United Kingdom every day. Of course, the British have their own customs for preparing tea. For some people the fact that 98% of Britons take milk with tea is a no-brainer. Apart from mild taste, there are significant benefits of drinking tea as well. It is a good source of vitamins (B1, B6, B9) and minerals such as potassium and manganese. Black tea, for instance, contains antioxidants that can help you prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of heart attack and strokes. Those of you who take pleasure in green tea are less likely to suffer from depression and chronic headaches. So what are you waiting for? Take a break and escape from the hubbub of your daily life.

Prawda czy Fałsz? na maturze
In Williams’ view, underwater resorts will be more prominent than space travel.? What does the future hold? Every year we are bombarded with diversified visions of the future and whether to believe tech specialists or not some daring predictions are likely to become commonplace quite soon. Skyscanner, a website which provides price comparisons for hotels, car hire services and flights, has released a bold report titled „The Future of Travel in 2024.” They hypothesize what travel may look like in a decade from nowadays. This notable travel search engine predicts that space tourism will not be reserved exclusively for affluent and haughty holidaymakers. According to Skyscanner „orbital space travel will be the next hot ticket and commercial companies are lining up to make it a more affordable proposition.” Thrill-seeking travellers’ appetite should be appeased due to a new space race. Undoubtedly, government-funded efforts as well as commercial ventures will enable cosmic tourists to set foot on the lunar surface by 2024. Those unable to splash out $250,000 on a round-trip ticket, will console themselves with floating weightlessly in low Earth orbit at a competitive price. Visionaries look forward to other travel options as well. Hence, they went a bit further and said that travel from Sydney to London would take nearly two hours without multiple layovers. Skyscanner CEO Gareth Williams eagerly foresees the rise of hotels beneath the waves. „I suspect that mass underwater exploration and tourism will develop with greater pace than mass space tourism. And I suspect you would get more from it, because there is more to see down there than in space.” I hope they are not lost in their own daydreams. At any rate, I am inclined to believe that it is a total far cry from reality. On the other hand, I intend to keep my eyes open for the international race that is bound to come sooner or later. Apparently, no country wants to finish in second place.
