I possess great hatred towards the incorporation of milk and sugar in hot brews; it strips character from the silky solution, be it a sparkling light roast or thoughtful dark. Moreover, it is additional sugar in one's diet - sweetness that ought be obtained in a solid state, like cookies or cakes.
And while there are a select few that may engage in debate over the concept of milk tea, I'd like to retort that prior to the popularization of global bubble tea franchises was the introduction of dairy as a cooling agent in the steeping-and-sipping culture of the British. In that regard, the condiments pay homage to tradition, as opposed to intolerance towards astringency.
A shaky tent resulted from windy external conditions, however, in observation of concrete blocks used as footings, I rested easy knowing that there would be no threat to its structural integrity. Flying napkins and uneven table legs, though, were another issue altogether.
