Re: Abomination, without question
The point of adding fat to tea is to counteract the bitterness.
We are hard-wired to avoid bitter tastes - which in the wild could indicate poisons.
People have genetically determined different taste buds - and different teas vary in their taste and strength. Adding sugar can become self-defeating - people can become inured to the sweet taste. Some people are genetically unable to taste certain artificial sweeteners.
