"Tea. Earl Grey. Hot." Did Picard really need to say it?

Something that occurred to me the other day with regards to replicators.

Why would Picard need to specify "Earl Grey. Hot" when ordering tea? If the computer can recognize an individual surely it would be able to remember their preferences. All Picard should have needed to say was "tea".

Of course if that were the case then we would have been deprived of one of Picard's trademark lines.
