It would hardly be surprising to learn that the British think Tea is good for you. (In other news, the Pope is Catholic and the sky is blue.) They say it doesn’t dehydrate you – “that’s an urban myth” – and of course it contains “antioxidants” and everybody knows how great those are. :-/
My great-grandmother was about as Brit as they come, and that has filtered down to the current generation. Even today I have two or three cups of tea every day along with whatever coffee comes my way. Lately, both have been decaf after 12:noon but oh-well.
A picture of a double-walled steel mug full of tea would be pretty boring, no? Shown here is my little pocket flashlight shining through the glass carafe’ of our Mr Coffee tea-maker, which is really just a coffee-maker that we have dedicated to making tea. We have another one that we use for coffee.
