The Tradition of Taking Milk and Honey
When it was used by God as a symbolic representation of excess and plenty in the land he had promised Moses, milk and honey had aroused not only the appetite but the curiosity of what these two liquids would look like or even better, taste like.
Ofcourse, in the course of time, that curiosity was satisfied and soon sugar began to make a way for honey. People now preferred honey in their paps, tea, gravy, etc. Then came the apiculture trade, bees stood no chance against the honey whetted appetite of the humans. As this trade grew, so did the production of honey and honey related products. Lets not forget the dairy sector. Yeah, we all love our beloved cows, but we love them more when they give us milk. Hmmmmm, that creamy, delicious, heart-warming liquid we all love to have in our tea cups.
