Good Morning Gravy Tea

Stopped into my neighbor's today. They were making the day's tea. It's customary for a guest to stay and drink some. So I stayed. The usual milk tea was made, but oddly I wasn't offered any. First they needed to fry up chunks of fat, to which they added flour and salt. Then return the tea to the mix. The process took at least a half hour. There was no hurry. Then finally, they offered me my cup of gravy-fortified tea, complete with chunks of floating fat floating on top. Good to the last drop. And the second cup wasn't bad either.
