  3. Brits are known for their tea-drinking habit. They tend to drink about 165 million cups of tea per day. That is, 60 billion per year!!

  4. British people are obsessed with exposing as much of their body to the sun as they can. This is because is really rare for them to have a sunny day and they want to enjoy it.

  6. British people love to moan about everything. If it's cold they moan about how cold it is, if it's raining they moan that it's raining, etc

  7. The British act more polite than they actually mean to. That's precisely why I don't like speaking "Britishly".
    Also if I had to guess, I'd say he's speaking about the English and not really about the British as a whole.

  13. British people use the word "sorry" quite a lot but most of the time they do not use it to apologize for anything. That might be one of the reasons they are known to be "very polite"
    And of course TEA. Here it´s a link of a video from a english vlogger talking about tea and how to drink it that i found quite interesting!!!

  15. If an english person had a guest in their house, he wouldn´t know what kind of tea to choose! (I wouldn´t neither) They have a great variety of tea, and they never get tired of it.

  21. Apparently the British are "obsessed" with many things as Argentinians, aren't they?

  22. I find that we are as obsessed by weather as British people. I think it's a good "opening" topic, when you try to start a conversation, specially with someone you don't know well. We could also compare their obsession with "tea" with ours with "mate", although we don't get that number. Argentinians drink as much as 100 litres per person a year.

  23. British people use the word "polite" too many times, and most of the time they are not really apologizing. That's probably why people around the world think British are polite but actually they are not more polite than the rest of the people in the world.

  24. They're as obssessed with tea as we, argentinians, are with mate. Although I can't help but to remember that funny musical scene from the previous video, with the Queen and her butler. If we remember, the so-called "British tea" was originally brought from India, even though nowadays everyone considers it a major part of British culture.

    What he says about people having lots of different varieties of tea blends is actually truth. I have a dear friend from England, and we were talking one day about tea, because I'm a big fan of it. He showed me a list of all the blends and brands they have there, which is way more extensive than what we can find here in Buenos Aires, at least in normal stores. I was amazed! There were at least a hundred of completly different blends, most of which I had no idea they existed at all! I wish I could try them some day!

  31. According to this young British, the weather is their obsession. Opposite to argentine people that use this topic to open a conversation or when we don’t know what to say. This young man also describe something contrary about their kindness. He said that actually they are not always polite. They don’t use “sorry” for apologizing, they just do this all the time. In Buenos Aires we are surprised when we find someone that apologizing for or have a good manners. British people also love to moan about pretty much anything, if it is cold, if it is hot, or, if it is raining and so on. In my opinion, the same as us. The British people are known for their tea drinking habit. If they have a guest, the first thing that they offer is a cup of tea. Argentinians offer to their guest drinking mate.

  33. British people drink a lot of tea as we drink a lot of mate. They have a variety of different types of teas in their houses. They drink around 165 millions of cups of tea per day! And it's the first thing they offer when someone came to their house (as we do whit the mate).

  34. The British are obsessed with the "weather". It is a common theme of conversation for them. Also, they use the word "sorry" all the time. I thought that the word "sorry" was used by the Americans always.

  35. British people talk a lot about the weather, it's funny because we also talk about the weather a lot even though we don't realize we are doing it. For example, when we are having small talks in general we mention something like "¡Que frío que hace hoy!".

  40. I'm really surprised of how much tea they drink... 165 Millon cups of tea a day!. And another thing that called my attention was that they really enjoy the sunny days and we don't give attention to the sun because we have it almost everydays.
