"How dare you?" – Literally everyone from the UK

I'm sorry but this sentence is objectively wrong.

I suppose it depends on the tea...

I didn't know tea could be brilliant. Is it a cultural difference in the way the language is spoken that "brilliant" can describe simple quality in Gaelic? American English would use "brilliant" to describe a level of reflected brightness/shiny, or in reference to intellect.

So would British English ! I can't imagine how tea would be brilliant or not so. Please explain!
