 lesson84 Tea   茶(英国)

原文:

O: Tea shop owner      T: Tourist

 

O: Welcome to Ye Olde Tea Shoppe

T: Thanks. It's my first time to visit England and I've heard so much about English tea. Which would you recommend?

O: We have quite a large selection. How about Darjeeling or Earl Grey? They're very popular.

T: Darjeeling? Whereabouts is that in England?

O: It's not in England at all. It's a district in West Bengal, in India.  Darjeeling is considered to be the “champagne” of tea. In fact, we don't grow tea in England at all.  Most English tea comes from India

T: That's odd. In China, all Chinese tea comes from China

O: Yes I know. I'll fetch you a pot of Darjeeling for you to try

T: Is there any special English tea ceremony like we have with Chinese tea?

O: Good heavens, no. We just pour a little hot water into a teapot 6rst to warm it, empty it. put some tea leaves in. add hot water and then leave it for a few minutes to brew.

T: I've heard that you Englishmen have afternoon tea everyday. Is that true?

O: Well, afternoon tea is said to have or18jnated with one person; Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford. In the early 1800s she launched the idea of having tea in the late afternoon to bridge the gap between luncheon and dinner, which in fashionable circles might nor be served until 8 0'clock at night. Nowadays, afternoon tea has gone out of fashion for the majority of British people but it's very popular among tourists like yourself

T: Yes. And I can see why. So it's ready to drink now, is it?

O: Yes. I'll pour some out for you. As you can sec it's a black tea and very fragrant. Try smelling it first.

T: OK. Mmmm . . . Smells nice. Can I taste it now7

O: We normally add some milk to it and maybe some sugar if you prefer.

T: OK. I'll try a little milk 6rst.

O: What do you think?

T: It's certainly different from Chinese tea! We would never dream of adding milk or sugar to our tea. But it tastes quite nice.


译文:

O:茶叶店主                   T:旅游者

 

O:欢迎光临老茶叶店

T:谢谢:我这是第一次来英国旅游.以前听说过很多英国茶叶方面的故事。你有什么可推荐的?

0:我们这儿的茶叶品种多着呢。大吉岭茶或格雷伯爵茶怎么样?这两种茶卖得非常好。

T:大吉岭?在英国什么地方?

0:根本不在英国。这是印度西盂加托的一个地区。大吉岭故人们当作茶叶中的“香槟酒”。事实上.我们英国根本不种茶叶。英国大多效的茶叶都是从印度进口的。

T:这倒有点奇怪。在中国,所有的茶叶都是本地产的。

0:是的,这我知道。我给你泡一壶大吉岭茶尝尝。

T:喝中国茶有特别的讲究,英国茶是不是也有?

O:谢天谢地.没什么讲究。我们只是先往茶壶里倒点热水暖暖壶,然后把永倒掉,再放进些茶叶,加些热水,然后泡上几分钟就行了。

T:我听说你们英国人每天都喝下午茶,是这样吗?

O:是的.据说下午茶与一个叫安娜的人有关,她是贝德福德第7任公爵夫人。19世纪初,她提出了傍晚喝茶的想法,以填补午餐和晚餐的空档,因为上流社会的人们要到晚上8点才吃晚餐。如今,对大多数英国人来说,下午茶已经过时了,但在你这样的游客中间却很受欢迎。

T:是这样,而且我明白这是为什么。那现在可以喝了吧?

O:可以了。我来给你倒。你看,这是红茶,味道很香。先闻闻看。

T:好的。嗯……闻起来小错。现在可以尝了吗?

O:我们一般要加些牛奶进去,你喜欢的话也许还可以加砦糖。

T:好的,那我先放点牛奶试试。

O:怎么样?

T:真是跟中国茶不一样!我们从来就没有想过往茶里加牛奶或糖。不过味道还真不错。
