I think tea would be a great way to discuss class difference in English society.  For instance, pouring tea straight into a porcelain cup could cause it to crack.  So if you could afford a porcelain tea set, but you couldn't afford to replace it weekly, you would pour your milk into your tea cup first.  But if you were wealthy, you would pour the tea in first, as a way of saying to your neighbors that it didn't matter, you can afford to replace any cup that is cracked.
