Who decides it? Why the True Born Englishman of course.

After all, it does seem a tad rich to just take a language from others and do what you will with it.

Shame on you.
www.etiquettescholar.com...

"Milk is poured after the tea. You may have heard or read that milk precedes the tea into the cup; but please, please, dear tea lovers, don't be guilty of this faux pas (another reason for banishment to the Tea Drinkers' Hall of Shame).

Don't put the milk in before the tea because then you cannot judge the strength of the tea by its color. Also, you need not hear some snobbish, chilly remark such as, "Oh, she's the milk-in-first type of person."

Where did this old milk-first tale come from? Samuel Twining has theorized that milk­first prevented early china from cracking in reaction to boiling water. That theory appears rather shaky today since boiling water is not poured directly into the cup. Boiling water is poured over tea leaves in a teapot. The leaves steep at least three minutes, producing a liquid of a temperature much reduced from the boiling stage."


No, no and thrice no. I am not having that.

Milk first every time.
