Tea, milk in first or last?


Originally, when cups were made of soft porcelain the milk would be poured in first to prevent the boiling water from cracking the cup, but now that they are made from hard porcelain or bone china it no longer matters, yet people still have their preferences. When making a cup of tea do you pour the milk in first or last, and why?

    As much as I have tried, I am just not able to find tea without sugar palatable. I only put one sugar cube per cup. Any more than that and it becomes too sweet.

    Lovely writing,thanks. One more important thing to remember is the hardness/softness of water which differs from region to region and affects staining of china.
