Tea with Mussolini

I'm out in La Storta, outside of Rome's ring road (I thought all roads lead to Rome, but the ring road just goes round it!). Beautiful area, and because I'm a bit early for my visit I've sat down for a cup of tea. In a coffee-obsessed country, ordering a cup of tea with milk is controversial!

Coffee-shop guy goes: Ah, English, I live in England-e 2 years-e. Yes-e, tea with milk-e, like the Queen(-e).

Didn't want to spoil his morning by telling him I'm Swedish. He was sweet, and the tea was good too.
