* Giles from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' can often be seen drinking tea or referring to drinking tea. He is, to no one's surprise, the British CO in the Allied army.

* ProfessorLayton enjoys his tea. In fact, one of the minigames in ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox'' involves brewing up different blends of tea using herbs found in certain puzzles and helping several people you come across by serving them their preferred tea. Finish this sidequest, and Layton receives the title of [[SupremeChef Tea Master]]. Said tea is given to people suffering from things like the chills, mild anxiety, forgetfulness, and in at least one case, thirst.

* Taxes on tea imposed by the British were what drove what is now the United States of America (then just 13 states) to rebel against and seek independence from the British in the late 1700's (see [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Tea_Party Boston Tea Party]], not to be confused with the modern-day [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Party_movement Tea Party]], though the latter took inspiration for its name from the former).

* The pilots of the instant-response nuclear deterrent jets in ''Literature/HulloRussiaGoodbyeEngland'' joke that if the Russians were gentlemen, they wouldn't launch their nukes whilst the British were having tea, they'd let us finish the cup first. The nuclear pilots know that they'd be going on a one-way suicide mission. But the in-flight rations served to the Vulcan bomber crews on every flight ''always'' include several Thermoses of hot tea.

** Stephen says that washing the teapot takes away the "character" of the flavor. Creator/DavidMitchell, as always, pokes a hole in this by pointing out that most people only ever use their teapot once a month when they want to feel civilized and if they didn't wash it out, it would go disgustingly moldy.
-->'''Alan Davies:''' And it's talking to you.\\
'''David:''' At that point, I think the flavor you'd get would be, if anything. ''[[BuffySpeak too characterful]].''

However, these characters typically drink tea from an ornate china set, whereas in Real Life, such things are reserved for special occasions. In fact, there's a dying tradition of keeping a set of "best china" that's ''never'' to be used unless the Queen should suddenly turn up for a visit.
