Tea is very very important especially for daytime music making. Edgar Allen Poe drank a lot I believe, but wasn't he a writer or something?

First infusion with milk, second infusion without.

In the summer Earl Grey is nice brewed for a very short time with lemon. My friends Mum pretty much shows the water the tea bag and thats it. I swear you could make her a cup of boiled water and add a splash of milk and she wouldn't tell.

Always. Milk and 2. Couldn't live without it - I'd never get out of bed.

Tea is meant to be made with boiling water. Putting milk onto a teabag first then the hot water tastes yeeuch. I have friends who do it and they can't see why I complain about it :roll:

Using a teapot - there's 2 schools of thought which goes in first, milk or tea. I can't taste any difference but some people think it does.
The lounge is great. Finally we get to discuss all the important things without having to wade through all the whining about sample rates, dither, bugs in Live etcetera. !!!!
Absolutely :D

I've often wondered how much of a difference drinking tea vs. coffee in the studio has on the overall performances and sound. I'm British, so naturally we tend to drink tea during long sessions, but I know a lot of U.S studios run exclusively on coffee...and LOTS of it.

Milk for me btw...just a splash, added after the tea, no sugar. Nice and strong.

Lovely.

Probably something fake and unhealthy (possibly more fake and unhealthy than soy :p)

Someone said milk in green tea, interesting, dunno how that would taste...
