    Do you call your dinner your tea, or dinner? to me, tea sounds awfully common and rough. I would never say "I'm going home to have tea" I see it like this; Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 'Tea' in my case, is having a cup of tea? does anyone else agree with me?.

    No, I disagree with you because you're wrong.

    It's breakfast, dinner and tea.

    It's just a regional usage. I don't understand what's controversial or even interesting about it.

    Most people I know call it tea, however, I call it dinner, mainly for the reasons put forth in the OP.

    Tea is a drink. Dinner is the evening meal. My father claims I'm posh for saying that!

    Dinner = hot food or salad
    Tea = scones, sandwiches, cakes, or dinner between 4pm and 6pm (rare)


    So I mainly use dinner

    I say dinner. I never understood using the word "tea", it just does not make any sense.

    Dinner. I would imagine saying tea involved having tea and cakes.

    It's a regional thing as another user pointed out.

    What does differentiate between social groups is the use of 'high tea', 'supper', and 'elevenses', because these people have nothing else to do but to eat more frequently throughout the day.
