You'll hate my solution then.
I mean, I'm not against a utilitarian approach to things. I certainly have a utilitarian approach to a lot of stuff in life. For example, my car: As long as it goes from point A to point B I don't really need anything else or care about other 'features' (Well, besides heating and air conditioning, and a functioning radio). And I don't begrudge other people for how they enjoy their tea.
Just saying, everyone has some things in life they want to sit back and enjoy, maybe spend a little extra money on just 'cuz it makes them happy. Tea is one of those things for me.
I didn't mean you would hate that I do it that way, I was just saying that the way I do it is clearly not for you!
That's a surprisingly important quirk of language that I've never really thought about before
