I’m beginning to think I’m just totally odd when it comes to tea. I take “normal tea” (and by normal, I mean Twinings brand Earl Grey. If it’s not Twinings, it’s not Earl Grey) with milk and enough sugar to kill a horse. Seriously. You can look into the bottom of my cup once the tea is gone and there’s still a layer of wet sugar at the bottom. I SUPER-saturate it. Fruity infusions (Celestial Seasonings) always involve some crazy amount of honey. Chai must be milky and, again, enough honey to kill a small mammal.
Yet I actually get offended when people try to adulterate my green tea. Or any of the various “get it in an asian restaurant” teas, really. Those I drink straight-up, and I don’t understand why people feel the need to sugar those.
BUT… my green tea ice cream had better be sweeter than GOD, or there is hell to pay.
So… yeah. I don’t make any sense. Not that that’s anything new, really. Just felt like sharing.
Neither odd nor silly. I do the same thing, sorta. I don’t milk my tea ever, but for my taste, black tea is sweetened, herbal tea is sweetened, red tea is sweetened, green tea and “Chinese Restaurant Tea” are NEVER sweetened.
Minus the sugar, I totally agree with you (I don’t like sugar in any tea). Earl Grey needs milk or cream, Chai needs the same…Green/White Tea.. just leave it be, it’s good by itself!DaLat tea: the best tea of all, and also, leave it alone! heh
