Idiom: ‘It’s not my cup of tea’

If you say something is not your cup of tea you mean that you don't really like something very much or that it is not to your taste.

Ex: I tried eating banana in rice, but it's not really my cup of tea.

The British are one of the largest tea consumers in the world, with each person consuming on average 1.9 kg per year. The popularity of tea dates back to the 19th century when India was part of the British Empire.
And yes, we normally drink it with milk and sometimes sugar.

If you go to Greenwich in London you can see the Cutty Sark, which was a famous tea transport ship.
