At work here, we have morning and afternoon tea breaks. This is a welcome change from my previous workplace. What are your thoughts on this?

That's great; how long is each break, 10-15 minutes?

Wonder this also. So will you have low tea together? Cake and coffee or tea?

Tea breaks are around 15 minutes each. Lunch break is an hour.

@Saraneo We usually head to the canteen and buy snacks there. They sell some sort of 'kuih' or cakes. Sometimes, they have curry puffs and pastries too.

It is nice to have a morning and afternoon breaks because it is like giving yourself a little rest in a day work just like machines need a rest to avoid over heat

Yes, it is good to have a break. It is time for us to chitchat instead of being lifeless office workers.

@holdoors..True..sometimes our brain will not function as good as in the morning and a good break is another way to bring back a little energy that has been used up in the morning it will kill the boredom of work

When I was working, I would welcome those breaks every day.

We have that kind of breaks too in my workplace. It's good for a company to have breaks like that so that employees will be able to eat well or have a break with their stressful works. BUt I seldom take a break in my workplace because I always have loads of work to do.

Yeah, it depends on the worker too. Sometimes, we have stuff to rush so we just skip the breaks.

Here it would be illegal not to have the breaks. There are laws about how long you can go without one.

It is definitely different in other countries, I see. Is the break mentioned lunch break or is it separate? We have lunch break and two tea breaks here.

Tea breaks are good as long as these are not abused by the workers.
