Tea and Cricket

When speaking of my latest mountain-tea-drinking adventure with my supervisor she remarked, "How very English of you!"

As I completed my rebuttal, "On the contrary, drinking tea is very Pakistani." It dawned on me, "Actually..."

But by then, beating me to it, she remarked, "What, like cricket?"

There's one to think about: What came first to Pakistan (or India as it was then), the tea or the English?

Regardless, one thing is for sure today, as with cricket (and not too much else), the Pakistanis do it better.
