But I'd left the tea steeping a bit long, and it clearly needed something to take the edge off. Milk's a no-go, but what else is in the fridge? Hm, heavy whipping cream from the last batch of fondue... no, that's older than the milk. What's this in the back? Whipped cream in a can? Ah, that stays good forever!
So, tea with whipped cream today. Not entirely satisfactory, but interesting.
