The British Tag

There is a tag that is circulating that involves 12 questions and a cup of tea. It was made by beautycrush a british youtuber, who came up with a list of questions that determines ones britishness. As much as I love America and all things American, I can't deny my british heritage. The tag has to be answered with a cup of tea of choice. So Queen Bee cup filled with Twinings English Breakfast in hand, here are my answers. 

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day?and how many sugars  Depends on where I am, but usually 1-2 cups. 1 spoonful of sugar.

2. Favourite part of your roast?  by far it has to be the yorkshire pudding and gravy! I do love a good roast potato though! Roast dinners are my favourite though so everything. 

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?  A classic rich tea biscuit or rich tea finger. It melts perfectly in a cup of tea. 

4. Favourite quintessentially british pastime? Afternoon tea is a favourite of mine.

5. Favourite word? I don't know if its  particularly british, but it sounds great in a british accent; Darling

6. Cockney rhyme slang?  bobs your uncle, you're having a giraffe (is that cockney???)

7. Favourite sweet? rhubarb and custard sweets or sherbert lemon  

8. What would your pub be called?  The Queen and the plough ( it makes no sense, but it's the first thing that came to mind)

9. No.1 British person ?  The Queen, The spice girls

10. Favourite shop/restaurant  ?   Charbonnel et Walker; the best truffles in london, their original shop is still on bond street and are the royal chocolate manufacturers for the queen. Favourite restaurants are local little pubs that do amazing roast dinners. 

11. What british songs pop into your head? All I can think of is wannabe by the spice girls

12. Marmite? No, never, ever.
