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

The real world reason is because Star Trek is an American TV series, and Picard has to specify that he wants the tea hot.

The in-universe reason is because you have to be really specific with the dumbass replicators. Remember Tom's efforts to wade through 40 soup varieties in Caretaker?
