Why drinking tea might just help in a crisis

Even in the US, long a coffee-dominated country, tea drinking is growing in popularity.

(CNN)Call it quarantea. Every day at 3 p.m. since the UK imposed coronavirus-related restrictions in mid-March, Laura Seabright, a London-based teacher, and her family have enjoyed afternoon tea.

The kids make cupcakes or other baked treats, and tea is served from a traditional English tea set Seabright inherited from her grandmother.
"The kids love it. They're always asking about things to make for tea. They've definitely embraced the ritual," she said.
    Seabright said it's been a good opportunity to get the family together and build in time to relax during busy days juggling work and homeschooling with three kids under 10. She hopes they'll find a way to keep up their daily teatime once the children are back in school and daycare.
