Wizz, we drink coffee waaaay more often than we drink tea. It's kinda rare for us to drink tea. Well, in the south people drink a lot of tea, but only one specific. We usually get sweet teas, made of fruits or flowers, or asian teas, and we add nothing to it but suggar and water.
I've noticed it's a personal preference. For example like there are people who dislike sweet things (I still can't believe anyone who says that)
for me tea is just like any other thing you add things you like to it to make it even better ^^
to be honest I'm not sure how a tea from wild fruits is done, but the smell is very strong and sweet (like berries for example) it's probably something like 1.dry the berries/fruits 2. steam and boil them 3. Drink
sometimes I drink my tea(s) with honey and lemon rather than mild and sugar. My most favorite one is from melissa and mint leafs (10:1) (usually with milk and honey)
Also I haven't tasted an asian tea yet, only from around here
My great grandpa used to gather herbs so I had a lot to pick from what suits my taste best.

Oh, I never tried to add honey O: Sounds lovely! I prefer the fruit ones, like peach, apple&cinamon, etc XD And I LOVE it sweet! I just can't stand adding milk to it ._.
Tea should be black with milk and sugar. Unless it chai in which case limit the ginger but not the cardamom.
I've been drinking milk since very little (we had a cow at the other countryside ^^(my fathers bloodline)) so it became kinda like a way to drink tea faster (instead of waiting it to cool off, add milk from the fridge, empty the cup, go get crazy in the yard again)
I like peach too (most fruits (probably all of them) they have nice smell and are tasty ^^.) also make me think of me addressing someone as the name of the fruit (preferably a pretty girl) and her getting red ^^ so tea is sweet in more than one way for me

same in russian/croatian/serbian
chai came from chacra, when shinobis failed at being shinobis they became chai brewers
It's closed to portuguese as well. For us it's 'chá', and its prounounced 'shah'
I tried to add milk once and it seemed to nasty!! Like the powder wouldn't mix properly or something! It's way lighter with water ç.ç
