The absence of a bone china set does not deter me from tea time. It is policy to tuck a Twinings tea bag into my purse before leaving the house. I find this convenience irresistible. Hot water is easily accessible due to the status of the kettle as an English staple. A hot cup of happiness, which is paramount to any genuine break, may be easier to come by than a retreat in which to enjoy it. In the event I am unable to locate an escape place, my imagination quickly works to fashion one.
