Quintessentially British 

Acrylic paint on paper

Is there anything more quintessentially British than a cup of tea. I draw attention to the history of Britain, a country who has been invaded frequently and also been a popular destination for people to relocate too. I see British citizens as tea leaves all brewing together to make the perfect beverage. Our diversity makes us dynamic. If each of us looked back far enough into our family tree, we would all realise that we are all descendants of immigrants.
