Living with limited luxuries as well as the ideas you get by being in a foreign land are gratifying. Many people live with less, but really we shouldn’t let that be the reason to feel good about what we have. What is ours is ours. What’s not is not. That should be enough.

Due to the high amount of tea I tend to consume here, I don’t stick to one type anymore to avoid many things.
One way to brew tea that does not require a double-boil, is to do as you see. Assuming you don’t have a suitable coaster or teapots.
Bread can be reheated and taste almost fresh, if you know how. Three days old may be too old but anything less, do it when you put the kettle on for tea.
Some bread though are thin. Applying the same method of reheating, will cause unevenness, decomposition of bread and a frustrated level of unintelligence.
FYI, I used to find English Breakfast tea too untasty until an Englishman here served it to me with milk. If you want to avoid sugar, start with a new type of tea you’ve never been accustomed to like green tea (not ready made). Finally, if you are the sort of person that does not drink your tea hot without good reasons for your delay, I seek to be distant from the likes of you.
