"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

How do you take your tea?

Well, I've been drinking tea since I was very little. Mum made it for us every morning to help us wake up and hopefully focus on our lessons. Along with that, there was always the local radio channel, which was something I will never forget as I loved and was looking forward to hear it every morning. I like my tea strong and with 2 to 3 sugars! Yummy. :) I could drink from one cup to three cups a day. Trying to quit though but it's really hard to do.

So, how do you take your tea?! :)

    I drink my tea without sugar normally but in Nepal it usually comes already sweet as Nepali people love their sugar and add it to the pan of milk, water and tea as they boil everything in the same pot.

    Oh, @mheredge , that's too sweet! 3 sugars is enough for me!

    Watch out @Bell, too much sugar and diabetes is a high risk. If you cut down or even omit sugar, you can delay or even avoid this terrible complaint.

    I drink my tea with a slice of lemon and sugar.
    I drink it every morning.

    I'm drinking my tea black and no sugar as I'm staying at a hostel and don't have any milk. I take it much weaker than I would if I was adding milk @Berry.
