* In a [=FictionPress=] story called ''Snakesss'', Corny the corn snake (TheHero) has assembled many snakes and other animals in the Everglades to fight against the BigBad (Hood the cobra) and his army of venomous snakes in an epic FinalBattle. But when it snows, one snake yells for everyone to run away and hibernate. They do it for ''three months'', and they quickly come back to continue their fight.

In the midst of combat, the fighting will suddenly stop. All parties involved will turn around, take a few deep breaths, then turn around again and simultaneously resume fighting. Occasionally, the fighters will resort to something more nonsensical during the break, such as fixing their hair or yelling at a friend/sibling/teammate. A common cause is when a character crosses a joke version of ThisIsUnforgivable- usually through [[ClothingDamage burning a hole in the opponent's favorite jacket]], a [[CloseCallHaircut chopping off a chunk of hair]], or, [[GroinAttack well...]] In those cases, the tea break takes the form of a "Dude, why did you do that?" (or, in the protagonist's case, "WhatTheHellHero") Bonus points if the hero and the opponent [[GoKartingWithBowser do something fun ]]''[[GoKartingWithBowser together]]'' as part of the tea break.

Obviously a comedy trope. A CombatPragmatist may grab a weapon or heal himself during such a break and launch an attack before the opponent realizes the break is over. See {{Anticlimax}}, where the fighting never resumes, and InactionSequence, where a break in the fighting isn't for comedic purposes. See also UncomfortableElevatorMoment, which can be a variation.

** Kim and Shego both have a cold. They both stop in the middle of a fight to sneeze a few times, and immediately start fighting again. They've stopped to snark back and forth about Ron and Drakken, to briefly conversing with each other about Drakken's latest IdiotPlot to his becoming GenreSavvy.

* Used seriously in Creator/DavidEddings's ''The Sapphire Rose'', the final book of the ''[[Literature/TheElenium Elenium]]''. Sparhawk and Martel agree to a quick breather in the middle of their fight to the death. In this case it is said that this is a formal tradition in a duel, whose rules they are both honoring.

Added DiffLines:

*In Book 3 of ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Tavi and the Canim general besieging him pause their battle and play a game of Iudus to pass the time. It allows the Canim to recover their dead and injured, takes up enough time for conditions to shift towards night (when the Canim will have the advantage), and allows the general a chance [[EnemyMine to slip Tavi some information]] regarding the BigBadWannabe's weakness.

** The Brits did it again in the Falklands. Trapped between the ocean and a brutal artillery barrage, the British grunts decided to put the kettle on while the ruperts were figuring out what to do. In an understated way this is {{Badass}}. Well come now. Just because there's a war on and the officers are chasing their tails, doesn't mean you have to skip tea.
