What’s bad about tea? The only problem I see with tea around here is that people will put a half-cup of sugar in a cup of tea. It seems it’s not tea unless you can shake it and it looks like a Christmas paperweight

I endorse this quote.
I endorse this quote, with a certain reservation.
It does not go far enough.
Most teas should be drunk with no sugar at all. Exceptions can be made for really ridiculously bitter varieties/blends, like gunpowder green, which actually needs the final beverage to be somewhere in the region of 10% sugar, but in general, no sugar.
And WHILE WE’RE AT IT. Put milk in your tea? I don’t approve, but I won’t make a fuss. Put milk in your aromatic tea? YOU WILL BE BOILED IN A VAT OF MILK FOR YOUR CRIME.
Actually, wait. I misread the quote and would like to retract my endorsement. I am all in favour of snowglobe tea.
