  a storm in a tea cup 小题大做,大惊小怪

  这句话直译是“茶杯里的风暴”,这是18世纪法国哲学家孟德斯鸠的一句名言。有一次他听说圣马力诺发生了一场骚乱,就用了a storm in a tea cup这个比喻来形容整个事件。圣马力诺是欧洲最小的共和国,人口稀少,因此孟德斯鸠认为那里的骚乱对整个欧洲局势无关紧要。在美语里,这个短语表达作a tempest in a teapot

  tempest

  英 ['tempɪst] 美 ['tɛmpɪst]

  n. 暴风雨;骚动;动乱

  vt. 使狂怒;扰乱,使激动

  vi. 小题大作;起大风暴

  tea break 茶休

  英国人有比较固定的饮茶休闲时间,习惯于三餐两茶,每天工作、学习一段时间后,喜欢停下来休息一刻钟左右,喝杯茶休息一下。这段时间叫做tea break(茶休)。茶休有morning tea(上午茶)和afternoon tea(下午茶)之分。
