Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
Obviously you remove a kettle from the stove before you pour it - and you detach an electric kettle from its base or whatever. But the temperature of the water is still boiling point, within a fraction of a degree, and it needs to be.

Of course if you live high up in the mountains you'll never have a proper cup of tea, because boiling point gets lower the higher you go. (Unless you use some kind of pressure cooker. Which I believe they used to on Himalayan expeditions.)

But honey in tea - for me that's a bit like using condensed milk, too much extraneous flavour. Chacun a son gout. (Chacun a son goat for that matter...)
