Which is the proper way to drink a cup of tea, with or without cream, and why?
I don't think there is a "proper" way to eat or drink anything. You eat or drink things the you like them, to suit you, not anyone else. If you like cream, you use it, if not, you don't.
Different cultures define what's "proper" or the best way to eat or serve a particular food or drink. If you're of British or Caribbean culture, the proper way to have tea is with milk or cream. That is how I prefer it. The American standard is iced, without cream, which I will drink if served but I find boring. I also like green tea, hot or cold, no cream.
I'm sure different cultures have different ways of drinking tea they consider to be "proper," I believe in drinking it however you like it best.
OK. First warm the teapot, add the tea, either loose or in teabags then boil the kettle. You have to use fresh cold water and pour the water into the pot AS SOON AS the water reaches boiling point. This is crucial to good and proper tea.
Wait for the tea to brew, mash, infuse for at least four minutes. Give it a stir with a small spoon.
Then if you prefer you pour a little milk into a cup and pour the peaty golden brown tea up to around two thirds full. Add sugar to taste.
Serve with fruit cake or a digestive biscuit or three...ok...you can have a cookie if you insist.
I like it both ways. English Tea, however, needs cream in it. Cream makes the tea smoother in my opinion.
