A SHORT DEBATE on SUGAR in TEA

  'I know very well that I am in the minority here. But still, how can you call yourself a true tea-lover if you destroy the flavour of your tea by putting sugar in it? It would be equally reasonable to put pepper or salt. TEA is meant to be bitter, just as beer is meant to be bitter.  If you sweeten it, you are no longer tasting the tea, you are merely tasting the sugar; you could make a very similar drink by dissolving sugar in plain hot water.'

-George Orwell 'A Nice Cup fo Tea' Evening Standard Jan. 12, 1946
