    I am convinced that serving tea is quite ceremonial, at least in some cultures. Here in Glasgow we have what are termed tea rooms, some designed by world famous designers such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, with high backed chairs and breathtaking interior design, anyway, tea comes in many manifestations, Turkish tea, thick, black and very sweet served in small cups the size of whiskey shot glasses, Indian tea, served with cinnamon and cardamom, generally made with milk instead of water, sweet and fragrant, Chinese green tea, the ultimate minimalist choice or the refined afternoon high tea of Devon, served with scones, clotted cream and some berried jam,

    how do you take your tea,

    ahhh yes, fragrant and tasteful! There is Lady Grey too I believe. I love tea after a particularly hot curry, the tea brings to the fore the spices once again.

    Sad to see a thumbs down for such a nice and innocent thread. I really should try having tea in different ways than just one, such as those you suggested.

    Do you mean 'black tea' or tea without milk - I don't know how to order tea 🙂

    Ceylon or Constant comment and for regular black tea, Red Rose brand with 2 tea bags and 3 teaspoons of sugar. MUCH better that that garbage from Lipton.

    ... 'without milk' or cream (ugh). Ordering tea from tea bags, request
    their package unopened. Do so yourself, when you're ready, then leisurely steep
    to your own liking of strength. Return the water if it's the least bit tepid.

    Perfect companion to a Fish Supper as well, (that's breakfast tea with or without milk, not a Curry).

    'Red Bush' is a nice naturally decaf option.

    People in Serbia and in Balkan generally drink tea only when they are sick.
    They are basically two kinds of tea - against diarrhea and against nervosity (and sinsomnia).
    I ussally go to English tea shops to take flu- and sughing powder dissolved in a nice cup of tea.

    Red Rose tea bags are awesome, when I can find it here in the southwest, I make 'sun tea' from it.
