Maybe the Brits aren't quite as silly as I'd thought.

I'd always thought the British were silly for putting...shudder...dairy products in their hot tea. I mean, really. Tea gets lemon, and sugar, but milk? cream? eww.

When I made my first order of stuff for the Flavia machine, I ordered a case of their latte creamer (a heavier non-dairy creamer than the usual stuff) and a rail (20 packages) of English Breakfast tea. You know what that means: at some point, I had to try them together.

Know what? It's not bad at all. The creamer (and, I assume, real milk/cream) takes the bitter edge off of the tea, and doesn't change the rest of the taste much. It's actually quite drinkable.

I've been hee-hawing Brits I know about this for years. Guess they're not as silly as I thought they were, huh? Now if they'd just lose those extra Us they keep adding to perfectly good words like "color", and drive on the right side of the road...
