Not sure how many of you saw this but I thought you would be interested in this tidbit about tea.

This was posted on reddit in their today I learn section about how historically, milk is added before the tea and it was a sign of wealth when someone added their milk afterwards, as pouring tea with low quality porcelain would break the cup.

I was watching some documentary on BBC, and specifically, you added milk to British tea, because the British wanted to use their own teacups made with local porcelain, but they were not as high a quality as chinese cups, so the Brits had to add the milk to the bottom of the cup or the cups would shatter. I thought that was a cool, cool fact.
