The horror of this American making tea is...




I just changed my mind about Brexit we need out of EU restraints RIGHT NOW so we can ditch the Human Rights Act and bring back hanging IMMEDIATELY no lesser punishment is SUFFICIENT for this CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY or even go full mediaeval with hanging drawing and quartering—


Heh. The horror.

All the things missing...
Tea Leaves
Warmed Teapot
Warmed Mugs
Boiling hot water
Brewing of tea
I am befuddled

1. Oh, I think she needs a little more sugar in there.

Two cups added to the pre-sweetened lemonade and Tang isn't nearly enough.

2. A bowl of chemicals and sugar

That's like mainlining cancer and diabetes all at once.

5. An attempt to recreate the taste of "builder's tea with 6 sugars, left to stew 30 min, with lemonade

and cinnamon accidentally dropped in and someone's thought 'fuck it, all the taps in the house have been disconnected, looks like I'll have to drink this'".

10. I grew up in the South and always hated sweet iced tea - the only kind served

Then I decided to try hot tea, but the tea served in most restaurants is Lipton or an equal noxious version. I moved up to Bigelow's Earl Gray tea which is lovely with just a hint of bergamot.

Currently, my favorite is Bigelow's Plantation Mint which is black tea with peppermint - very mild and refreshing. I also drink various herbal infusions - mint, peach, and lemon with ginger are my favorites, with an occasional raspberry cup.

11. I've lived in Texas most of my years

and can't abide sweet tea at all. For iced tea, I just drink tea, no sugar or lemon.
And having lived in the UK for the better part of a decade, the only hot tea I'll drink is Typhoo or PG Tips. Twinings Irish Breakfast when I can find it.

12. That "method" of "tea making" goes against community standards.

Definitely my standards. Now heating the water in the microwave will pass muster. Once boiling, put in a tea bag (PG Tips preferred, Tetley or Yorkshire Tea will suffice). Let seep for a while. If impatient stir it up with a spoon. Take out the tea bag.
Add milk and sugar (or other sweetener) to ones own taste (me - milk, two sugar). I've heard some people put the milk and sugar and the teabag with cold water and put that in the microwave directly. Still better than that abomination in that video. Of course, teapot and kettle are the way to go, and if you want a WWII flavour to your tea, make one teabag last for six people. My grandmother still takes her tea this way.
