    Wait a minute! I thought Arlo was American! If he is, why didn’t he leave the teabag in the mug?

    I’m not a tea drinker but I’ve never seen a tea drinker not take the teabag out. All the better to get a second cup for free, so to speak. But I’m confused, the third panel is Arlo passing on the teacup and choosing the coffee mug for his tea.

    Well I guess I’m not a procrastinator. I choose coffee.

    I am a procrastinator, but I’ll take hot chocolate with Disaronno amaretto over coffee or tea any day.

    The best tea is enjoyed in a transparent and thin-waisted glass

    I’m lazy, I microwave the water until hot and leave the bag in the mug for a sufficient amount of time for a robust cuppa.

    Tea was meant to be ice cold and sweet (with NO lemon). Yes, I am from the south, why do you ask?

    My father and his siblings were born on the Lower East Side of New York to a mother who grew up in the East End of London. They always removed their tea bags before drinking a cuppa.

    My folks are Glaswegian. They come from a long line of tea drinkers. I learned to make tea as a boy and the tea bag NEVER went in the cup. A tea pot was heated, water boiled, bags set aside. As the water was boiling, the heated pot was emptied, the bags placed inside and the appropriate amount of water was poured into the pot. A tea cozy was placed over the pot and the cups, milk, sugar, teapot and the Peek Freans Shortcake cookies were placed on a tray and brought to the living room. Everyone had their preference of tea strength and my job was to remember them. That, even 60 years later, is the correct way to have tea.

    I just had to get a tea pot to steep the bag in then pour in a proppa tea cuppa. Looked and looked for one and finally got one at the Good Will, cheap. THEN , now I seen all white ones, same size as one I got, but all white costing, 4 times more than I paid and mine will probably last longer. Just tastes better than in a mug

    When I was a tad, my English great-grandmother used to ladle strong, sweet milky tea down our throats. I’ve backed off on both the milk and sugar a bit, but I still like it strong. I drink other teas au naturel, but Indian and Assamese blacks get milk and sugar.

    I’m the 1 out 10 that prefers coffee, but I don’t procrastinate when it comes making coffee.

    But nobody has answered why Arlo passed on the teacup and choose a coffee mug.

    He is American. He Used a teabag instead of an infuser or teapot with real tea.

    Java. Tea, only if it’s iced. And sweet.

    Hot tea, milk and sugar, that’s how my grandmother taught me.

    I make tea to drink cold and more than on mug full. Except when it is very cold.

    I love the British snobbishness about tea, and only using loose leaves. Just about everything set in Britain (TV shows, movies, books) shows them making instant coffee. I don’t drink coffee, but even I know better.
