I'd have expected the English way to be something like "Monitor which kinds of tea that person drinks, and if they say 'hm' or 'hmmmm' if they don't agree with something. Then wildly speculate internally, but remain unsure about the actual facts.".
@rixx @artsyhonker @voidspace Though I'm half-expecting someone to pop up and tell me that the internal speculation is something the upper classes don't bother with (they *know* they are better than you) and working classes also have little time for (nothing to lose by being blunt). Like I said, it's complicated. ;-)
