Did you coax them out of hiding TA?

Any takers?I_am_Hungry

Nope, and we've a few more now who must be very shy.  Blueberry muffins and tea sounds good, count me in!  I haven't seen Shereen this weekend, I don't think so let's go to Danuta's, I know she'll be in.  Big_Laugh

I'll try that again!

That sounds perfect!

The muffins are ready now, Earl Grey for me, 2 sugar, no cream, no lemon, thanks!

Don't put out the good stuff for me, just a big ol' mug will do....TeaWave

Big mugs are all that I do, no time to faff around with re-filling little tea cups.  I'll stick with dark Indian tea if you don't mind, no sugar and very little milk.

I'll try that again!

Michelle one of the things which really perplexed me while I was living in the US was the thought of adding cream to tea, as I have black tea anyway it diesn't matter but I did often wonder if people in the US really do add cream and not milk to tea? Please enlighten me Whistle

I think its since cream is used for coffee, and coffee is more common here than tea, that folks make that association.

That is the biggest reason I drink tea instead of coffee, tea doesn't need any dairy (milk or cream) to make it drinkable, and for me coffee always does.

On a similar subject, have you ever had Thai Iced Tea? Its pre-sweetened and has cream in it and the tea is a really strong brew. Intresting, but not very drinkable in my experence....Eeek

For me, both tea (reasonable stuff, not the tea bag debris) and fresh coffee are both best taken as is - no milk or sugar. Maybe a dash of lemon in tea.

But instant coffee has to have added milk. I cannot imagine cream in tea, although I have heard of the Devon Cream Tea - sounds like instant  cardiovascular failure!
