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

Perhaps it's a courtesy for whomever would be in command. As early as the first season we saw Geordi in the ready room in command, I believe it was Arsenal of Freedom. It would be a faux pas if someone ordered tea and got Picard's blend. So in a way it's an acknowledgment of Picard's fealty to Starfleet.
