Milk In Tea
Elsewhere in these pages I've made my feelings about milk in tea abundantly clear. In a word - yuk. Of course, I'm not nearly so naive as to believe that most tea drinkers share my antipathy toward this practice.
As a matter of fact, the people over at teadog.com recently did a survey which found that 69% of tea drinkers (219 were surveyed) drink tea with milk in it. Obviously, as they note, "the high percentage preferring milk reflects the British influence on tea and on US tea drinkers."
Speaking of milk and tea, here's a brief article from a Kashmiri publication about the troubles that arose for tea drinkers when a security crackdown inhibited the flow of milk into the city of Srinagar.
