Benedict Cumberbatch has unleashed his feelings in the most British rant ever – on the subject of chamomile TEA.
The actor and Sherlock star let fly on a radio show where he was promoting his new animated film The Grinch.
The British Hollywood star said he couldn’t stand the way people used the word ‘tea’.
“Shall I just really vent now?” he asked Absolute Radio host Dave Berry.
“I’m sick of chamomile tea being called tea. It’s not tea!
“Tea is a green leaf that comes mainly from the foothills of India and South America – places that have beautiful mountains.
“It needs to be a sub-tropical, alpine climate. It’s a very specific process.
“Chamomile is not grown in these environments. So, that’s not a tea,” he ranted.
Cumberbatch then went on to imitate American people asking if he required sweetener or milk in his Chamomile tea.
