British Afternoon Tea
This afternoon, my father, brother, my cousin from the United States, and I went to Takashimaya’s British tea shop to drink afternoon tea. When I visited the United Kingdom many years ago, I didn’t try afternoon tea because the price was too expensive. So today was my first time. There were sandwiches, scones, kitsch on the tea stand. We also ate Scottish eggs. They were all delicious. We ordered different tea. I chose exotic milk tea which had stronger flavor of species. Then we talked many topics. This might be the first time I chatted in English for so long. My voice became hoarse. However, my English was not good enough to express some proper nouns or complicated things. For example, I wanted to say the democratization in Taiwan, and I could introduce it very well. Finally, I showed the English page on Wikipedia. My cousin is a college freshman, but he has his own thought. We extended our vision by talking with him.

英式下午茶
今天和父親、哥哥、美國來的表弟一起去高島屋的英式茶館喝下午茶。以前去英國的時候,因為下午茶太貴了,所以沒有喝到下午茶今天算是第一次的嘗試。在兩層的茶架上裝著三明治、司康、鹹派,也吃到了蘇格蘭蛋,全部都好好吃。我們點了不同種類的茶,我喝的是異國風味的奶茶,香料味道比較重。然後,我們聊了許多話題,這大概是我第一次用英文寮那麼久的天,聲音都啞了。我的英文還不夠好,所以有時候專有名詞或是比較複雜的東西,還是沒辦法用英文講得很明白。比如說到政治的話題時,我想要說台灣的民主化,但沒辦法說得很清楚,只好讓他看英文版的維基百科。表弟雖然只是大一生,但是很有自己的想法,我們和他聊天,也增長了自己的見聞。
