Long ago, a "sugar nipper" was used to pinch off a chunk from a sugar loaf to sweeten tea. This tedious ritual forced otherwise refined tea-drinkers to fish the lump from their cup after partially dissolved.

An exasperated Austrian woman beseeched her husband to devise a single serving sugar. In 1843, the Swiss-born owner of a beet sugar refinery employed women to crank out 10 tons of cubes a day- much to Vienna's delight. Perched upon the saucer, iced flowers sweeten both tea and conversation.
