I like tea cooked very hot and plain with nothing in it. I have noted that adding whole carnation milk and raw granulated sugar to a cup of Assam tea black tea or Ceylon does improve the flavor with an enrichment in the cup.
I like when the tea is brewing to observe its bubbling effect if adding milk and sugar and how rich and creamy it becomes and the color is so wonderfully golden. So much is to be found in having good tea.
Thanks to the polyphenols, the antioxidants found in tea, once again for their cancer-fighting effects. While the overall research is inconclusive, there are enough studies that show the potential protective effects of drinking tea and thus TEA can always be added to your list of daily beverages.
