From dust to Ashes

Builders standing around in groups with cups of tea, discussing last nights win of the Ashes.

The Ashes, something to do with cricket. Cricket, something to do with men in white outfits, and tea breaks. So it is very appropriately to drink tea while discussing Englands win of the Ashes after 9 years of loosing to the Australians.

Milk and sugar?

I know very little about cricket. It has a strange 'bat' ... they are flat instead of pole-like ... LOL!

People wear white and I can only imagine how hard it might be to keep those whites so sparkling clean!

Tea I understand! But PLEASE ... no milk and sugar! Just plain. I know that isn't 'proper' ... but I really want it clean and pure and sparkling ... not clouded with milk ... and not SWEET! LOL

I drink coffee black too ... and I understand that IS the way to drink it in England! My husband's aunts were shocked that I drank my tea minus milk and sugar when we were there last spring.

TEA WITH NO MILK! Being English, I disagree with that on moral grounds.

And wohoo, down with the aussies! The ashes are ours. Yeah baby.

Tea without milk? How uncivilized and rude. And i am not even english. Coffee, on the other hand, has to be drunk without anything, just like whiskey.

Milk changes the taste of the tea ... and I don't like warm milk. I LOVE Earl Gray tea!

Sorry my unorthodox tea drinking habits are offensive ... but heck guys ... I don't like warm beer EITHER! It must be ICY cold!

Tea with no milk and no sugar. I always drank tea with milk in England and couldn't ever imagine tea without milk, but not anymore.. I'm half a Dutchie, and it tastes sooo much better :-)
