    strengthen...over

    Hi,

    "Mary and her friend strengthen their friendship over tea at the Mary's house."

    What does 'over tea' mean here?

    Many thanks.

    I think the meaning here is that the two of they have strenghtened their friendship while they were drinking a cup of tea...i hope it's the right answer.

    Absolutely right - they sit together, drink their tea and chat, finding they have many things in common.

    You can use 'over' in this way with any food or drink; 'over tea and biscuits', 'over drinks at the pub', 'over dinner' ...
