Early on, while writing our first novel, the parents of our teenage hero had to sit him down and have a serious heart-to-heart. This was a scene Angie was working on, so she had them do it over a cup of tea. Four books later and _Tea Time_™ is our go-to tradition anytime our characters need to deal with the newest crisis or conflict.
This info comes up because a friend of mine said that he and his partner have started taking a page from the Counios & Gane playbook and now sit down with tea anytime they need to talk something through.
To me, this is one of my favourite kind of responses to people reading our books!
