That’s how I drank my tea for at least ten years. For periods of that I substituted sugar with with sweeteners for no real reason.
I remember when I used to work in Slough and commuted via Reading station for four years that my morning routine involved picking up a copy of the Independent from WHSmith’s and then getting a large tea from AMT on the station concourse. The barristas used to recognise me so much I didn’t even have to say anything any more.
A few weeks ago I made the decision to no longer take sugar with my tea which, seeing I consume around 3-8 cups a day, is a considerable amount of reduction to my sugar intake. I’m not really sure why I did that either though I remember this change started at work when I didn’t have the time to actually put sugar in and then realised that I didn’t mind the taste.
Fast forward some weeks and I’m here at home drinking a nice cup of Earl Grey tea with a lot of milk and no sugar and for the first time I’m missing it. It doesn’t taste the same as it did before and I feel like I need sugar in it, but having come this far I know I won’t change something that has taken me this long to notice!
Btw, this isn’t today’s tea. This was a pot of Earl Grey tea at Giraffe in January!
