You're very welcome.
Re: wine. Yeah, I'm aware of the addition of casein during the wine making process. The analogy I had in mind was actually adding milk to your wine glass before imbibing.
Re: tea. Chinese people usu. drink tea less as a complementary beverage (in the way wine would be) and more as a palate cleanser, which is why I think that in part sugar is not added to hot tea at restaurants.
But hey, it's your meal, eat it the way you want! As long as you're happy, then it's all good.
