TEA QUOTE

Use milk for your tea; cream is too heavy.

Surely nobody in the world would think of putting cream in tea!!

That is a beautiful tea table. Those plates are so very pretty. I use 1% organic milk in my tea and it is amazing how many times restaurants offer only cream with tea.

I'll have mine with milk and two lumps please!

Beautiful table setting, Bernideen . . . those plates are gorgeous!

Thanks for sharing!

Blessings,
Teresa

That's interesting as a tradition compared to the ancient one in Tibet that is still followed in remote areas. They mix tea with Yak butter which is sometimes even rancid. --Spirituality of Tea

My daughters love milk in their tea--me, not so much! Just a couple of dunks of the tea bag like my Great Grandfather did. He could use one tea bag all day!

That is such a sweet table - so inviting.

Wonderful china. I like tea without milk or cream, and without sugar.

Marilyn Miller said...

Definitely true quote! Love, love those plates.

Milk and a bit of honey in my tea each afternoon. Can't wait to have tea outside again on a pretty table like yours.

My grandfather always took his tea with milk and two or three lumps of sugar. English to the core!
Everything looks beautiful, Bernideen, as it always does here. And I LOVE your header, too. Trying to get a few blog visits in tonight while hubby is feeling good. xo Diana

Good Morning Bernideen, Firstly can I say, your table setting is beautiful. I love the embroidered tablecloth and so many beautiful teacups and plates... such a feast for the eyes.
I smiled when I read about cream in tea, as I remember a friend of mine, many years ago, used to add evaporated milk to his tea. I couldnot imagine drinking tea with evaporated milk, but he said it was due to the war years when milk was scarce, so he got into the habit of drinking tea with evaporated milk. He then got so used to the taste that he could not return to drinking tea with milk.
We all have our funny little foibles don't we.
Best Wishes
Daphne

Bernideen, lovely table! I drink my tea either plain or with just a teaspoon or two of 2% milk; even whole milk is too much like cream for my taste. I've had tea many places that offer cream (actually half and half, I think), but at some of the posh hotel teas, I've been offered a choice of whole milk, 2%, 1% and nonfat!

I so agree with that quote, Bernideen! It's milk and sweetener in my tea.
