Who in the right mind pours the milk into the cup before the hot water? It's like when people put the sugar in first...

This isnt a "British" problem. This is an idiots problem who think it hugely makes a difference. The only time you need to put the water in first is when you dont know how much milk the tea drinker wants. You let them add their own milk. If you know how much ******* milk someone wants their is no reason to not add the milk first.

This is very educational. I'm American so I don't drink tea, but now know what to do when I'm in Britain.

Even worse is when someone pours the milk in while the teabag is still in the mug.

It makes the tea stronger, and I hate strong tea.

Know it doesnt mate. I hate strong tea but this how I always make it. Aslong as you dont keep in the teabag too long its fine. Nicer even.

My uncle puts the teabag in the cup, then pours the milk in and lets it just ******* sit there. That makes me more angry than anything else

the only one with a problem is you. It literally makes no ******* difference.

I've made at least cups of tea a day for the last 10 years and believe me i have tired making it in any different order possible and it makes no ******* difference.

You should sort yourself out kid if that annoys you.

And yet, you seem to be the one arguing with pretty much anyone you can find here. If other people's personal opinions piss you off this much, then maybe you're the one with the problem.

Also, you make "at least cups of tea a day"? That's pretty impressive.

You're Uncle is doing it right!

What if you're brewing tea for multiple people? Some people want different amounts of milk, some dont want milk at all. If you put milk in every mug, then you have to just completely redo some of them if people dont want milk. If you add water first, you leave it to brew and then you can go ask who wants milk/sugar.

Let the bag brew in the hot water first. Dont let it soak in cold milk, what the *******. That isnt going to do ****. Maybe you didnt understand my first point, my uncle pours in milk over the teabag, leaves it and then takes the bag out. And THEN adds in the hot water. Completely removing the main component of brewing tea. Letting the leaves soak in hot water is essential. Hotter the better, therefor, add the milk after.

*your
And i'm pretty sure you're arguing. You replied to almost everyone in this thread directly attacking whatever they're saying, you're citing a source, and as a last resort you swear or just straight up insult the person you're talking If that's not an argument, i dont know what is.

If you did read my other replies like you said you did then you would have ******* noticed that I said the only time you shouldn't add milk first is if you're making tea for people you do not know.

Also correcting internet grammar doesn't make you any smarter.

Really think about that considering you only wrote he leaves the teabag in the milk and nothing else! You only have yourself to blame for the confusion.

Well I wasn't going to argue! I was going to leave a reply and be done with it.
The swearing, the insulting and the bad language doesn't make for an argument considering this is a one way street!

This is a ******* roast! And you ************* who think hot water first is the correct way indefinitely are on the end of it.

And if you're afraid of a little profanity then maybe Mommy shouldn't let you stay on the internet so late.

Some at me you pissy furry loving ************! I'll make you heart thumble and dick crumble! Because I AM SLUGNUGGET! THE INTERNET WARRIOR!

Honestly, now you're just arguing for arguments sake.

Personally, i believe the tea should brew in as hot water as possible. As do a large number of other people. That's the origins of tea, it gets the most flavor out of the leafs. It allows you to brew for guests no matter their preference of milk. It also means the tea will stay warmer for longer once it's ready to drink.

Right now you're just purely resulting to petty insults which arent even relevant, and trying to brute force through this conversation.

Yep there you go ************ though your arse. Actually read the back of a coffee tub. It says DO NOT make with boiling hot water. If you actually knew anything about brewing or cooking in general. In most cases boiling coffee beans or tea leaves loses the flavor.

I dont need to refer to petty insults ffs. I use them because I can and I like to make ignorant and purely wrong people angry.

AND MATE I JUST SAID ITS BETTER FOR GUESTS AND GROUPS.

Except its not.

There is no reason to add the milk last unless you're not sure how much milk the other person wants.

I have no ******* doubt if you're british you know how everyone in your family likes their tea!
