Dialogues: Do Americans put salt in their tea?

Fifi: Do Americans put salt in their tea?
Me: No.
Fifi: Really?
Me: Yeah. I'm pretty sure.

I don't know why, but she's asked me this question about three times now. Maybe she saw an American putting white sugar in their tea and mistook it for salt? Most of the sugar here is unrefined (brown) so I can see how that mistake would be made. Whatever the case, I've had a hard time convincing her that salted tea really isn't a thing in America.
In fact, I'm still not sure that she's convinced.
We'll see if it comes up again. 


  1. I have never seen an american putting salt in their tea!
