Tea Time TidBits

There are many things to talk over tea. News, politics, arguments over what to talk about during tea time, and such. We'll pick your brain with a tiny tidbit to make you go, 'hmm' as you breath out some air in mild amusement. 


#1 Milk First or Tea First?

That is the question


This burning question has bugged people for a long time similar to the 'chicken and egg' conundrum. And unlike the conclusive answer the previously mentioned conundrum has, the milk/tea-first/last question has been around for a while, mostly based on cultural practices rather than cold-hard facts.

According to Fortnum & Mason, milk went in the cup first before the hot tea to keep poor quality china from cracking. So putting the milk in first would mean your cups would stay intact.  

This was a measure of social class and meant the higher the quality of cups you had, determined when the milk went in the cup.

Now that these days of judging social position by this sort of thing are long gone, we say pour your milk in whenever you like.  


Happy Sipping!





Lovely, well-rounded tea for those who like their tea to have flavour and depth.

They have a variety of great tasting, ethically sourced tea.

Both their tea and their products are high quality and they customer service is excellent.
