TEA
#15
Ah, Pinoy, these poor, poor Americans,  whatever shall we do with them? [Image: laff.gif]
 
I am willing to concede that the "Iced tea" may be palatable on certain rare occasions. However, I do not believe it should be falsely dignified with the name of "Tea." It is, in reality, a concoction quite different. "Tea-flavored ice-water," perhaps?
 
No, true Tea is hot, almost to boiling, on occasion. It is prepared by mixing a blend of fine teas together (though I admit that established types, such as Prince of Wales, Darjeeling, and Earl Grey are equally acceptable) and putting said tea into a tea-ball. The ball is then submerged into the mug of heated water, and allowed to steep for between a minute and five. When steeping is complete, cold cream and sugar are added, and tea is consumed.
 
Alternatively, the cold cream may be poured into an empty mug, and hot tea poured over this, if the tea is made in a teapot on the stove, rather than one mugful at a time. I recommend the latter procedure, as one seldom drinks only one cup of tea.
 
In addition, it might be wise to add that a tea-ball is not strictly necessary, though desirable. One could conceivably produce the tea like cocoa, and pour it directly into the water. I've not done this. OR, in a rush, it is possible to use one of the new-fangled "tea bags" which you see in stores sometimes.
 
Jennifer, who is Peter Funt? Also, you didn't express your tea preference!!![Image: smile.gif]
