Here's where our nation's English heritage is a win-lose. Coffee took off here in large part due to the boycott on tea. But they were still such English-y tea lovers that they added sugar and cream to sweeten it up.
My mom drinks it black and maybe that's why I do. I like the taste better than the sweet stuff and it makes life a lot easier for me that I don't have to worry about finding and adding things. Just brew, pour and drink.
