i have a question for those in England perhaps. is it standard to drink regular tea with milk and sugar? that is how i have always had it and i heard it is standard over by you to do it that way. i use lipton tea for that and it's great.
There are the purists, who do not add anything into the tea and use special tea pots only (tea bags are a big no no).
There are those who use milk and sugar and drink away, you should always take care not to add to much milk though.
There are several inbetween which use no milk but sugar etc.
Also different types of sugar and honey are very common, like brown sugar, raputura, wood honey, sunflower honey etc. Varies greatly depending on where in Europe or UK you are located.
Also when you get to eastern Europe, there is the "Chai" which comes from arabian culture and is made quite differently. Usually a very strong tea with added flavours.
If you are using tea bags, Lipton would not be my first choice. From the widely available brands Twinings is OK, but I almost exclusively get my tea from a local tea store, they mix my own mixtures and use very good imported teas.
