today's fun find
I LOVE tea; I drink it all day if I can. Usually Green Tea, sometimes Earl Grey, once in a while Lapsong Soochong; always with soy milk. Not very often do I drink loose tea. I can just hear the grumblings of the tea purists. Do not judge. It's just too time consuming to do it right, most of the time.
My dear grandmother Manou, a REAL tea lover, never steeped a tea bag in her life; and NEVER added milk - nor sugar for that matter- and surely not du lait de soja.
Always the Anglophile, she always stated that British etiquette dictates which to pour first, the tea or the milk. I don't remember which. If I have any British readers today, please remind me.
Not to worry, I'll go on drinking my tea made with tea bags. Soy milk. No sugar.
To my great amusement, I keep finding so many different style teabags out there! Who knew creativity would apply to this mundane but delightful petit objet .
