  3. And then there's lil 'ol me in the US who somehow ended up tea obsessed despite a lack of tea culture or family tradition.

  4. The Brits I've known have always been particular about how their tea is brewed though...

    1. Are they miffers or tiffers? (i.e. Milk In First or Tea In First?) ;-)

  5. LOL! Brits make such a big deal over milk vs tea first to the point where they will straight up disown family members for disagreeing about it. Meanwhile, we Chinese are all, "whyy..... are you adding milk to tea in the first place??"

    1. personally I suggest milk as binding, max 25%; it also covers taste of boiled water (which is slightly stronger taste than tea itself)

  6. Meanwhile, somewhere in Russia:
    A man is soaking the same teabag in his mug for the fifth time: "Gulp-gulp-gulp... Yummy! Like from babushka's samovar!"

  7. And we Poles drink so much tea, that (together with our neighbours Lithuanians, having had a common coutry for several centuries) we are the only nation(s) to heve a word for "tea" not coming from China, neither Southern (like "tea", "thΓ©", "Tee" etc.) or Northern (like "chay", "cha", "chai" etc.). Our tea (black of course) has a name from Latin "herbata".
