Blood Trade - Faith Hunter

I was just startled that Jane put cream in her hot tea (regular black tea).

 

That's just weird to me instead of milk.  The series and this book have made much of Jane as tea connoisseur fussy about such things.

 

Not weirded out enough to scroll back through previous books to see if she drank it that way before and I just missed it.

 

I miss local dairies like Ehrlers and High's where we used to be able to get cream.   (Isn't it unusual in a small town in Mississippi — without your own dairy cows — you could get what Americans call cream versus coffee-creamer, whipping cream or half-and-half? I can't get regular cream here in Kentucky, not even in Whole Foods.)
