“I'll have cucumber sandwiches, crumpets, scones with jam and cream, a slice of Dundee cake and a pot of Earl Grey tea, please. But no sugar—I'm on a diet.” Many people say such things in English tea shops.

    In England, tea is not just a drink, it's a meal as well. In some homes it's the last meal of the day, although for many people it's a light meal between lunch and dinner. But most working people don't have time for a proper tea.

    Most tea shops serve tea between three and five in the afternoon, although the most popular time is around four o'clock. So an English tea is great for people on holiday who have the time to enjoy it. Why not try a typical English tea in Oxford? After a long day visiting the romantic city, here are some tea shops to visit.

    The Randolph Hotel in Beaumont Street is in the very centre of the city. It's a fine Victorian building and offers the best traditions of English teatime, with piano music in the background.

    The Nosebag in St Michael's Street is popular with university students. Excellent homemade cakes and a good choice of teas are available (可得到的) but go early as there are always long queues.

    The Wykeham Coffee Shop in Holywell Street is a small tea shop opposite New College, and is popular with tourists and students.

    George's Café in the Covered Market is popular with market workers and shoppers.

    Queen's Lane Coffee House on the High Street is one of the oldest restaurants in Oxford, and despite its name, serves excellent teas, and also has a choice of newspapers.
