    We never make English tea at home, only Indian - though everyone has their own version :p:

    Pot on stove, add water, milk, ground tea leaves (yeah we're cool like that) and masala mix (XD).
    Heat until it's risen twice.
    Add sugar to the bottom of the cups, pour in the tea, stir.

    Beautiful.





    With English tea, I put the teabag in the cup, add boiling water, then milk, then sugar.

    teabag in mug/cup
    pour water directly onto teabag
    squish teabag with teaspoon to release as much teabag goodness as possible
    remove,and put 1 teasppon of sugar
    stir anticlockwise
    lemon juice
    stir again but clockwise

    DRINK =D

    and the anticlockwise/ clockwise thing is only so to entertain me...........:|

    Boil water - Get cup - Put in teabag - Pour in water - Forget about tea - Realise half an hour later it is still brewing - Take out teabag - Add two tablespoons of sugar - Add precisely 1 drop of milk - Stir - Spoon out the floating skin on top - Put tea in microwave - And drink. Finally.

    No wonder I don't have it often. It's too much hard work. :rolleyes:

    Hah! I get the woman of the house to make one whenever I feel like one.

    In fact, I feel like one right now.

    Except, see, I lied about the first bit, since I've been single for over a year now. Probably because of what I just said.

    Sod it.

    Just so you know, this thread has been done to death.
    However;

    Teabag, add water, take teabag out, then add the milk.

    I love a good bit of teabagging.

    Boil the kettle, 2 teabags (1 pg tips and 1 tetleys), boiling water on teabags, then microwave for a minute to keep water scalding while it brews. Then remove and squeeze teabags. Add a splash of cold water to make it drinkable and enjoy.
    No gay milk and sugar in my tea, just deliciously strong tea.

    I usually just pour water on a teabag if I'm lazy though.

    I don't normally use teabags. Its loose tea leaves all the way for me If you do use tea bags, don't out the milk in first because it makes the tea bag waterproof! Then it will taste like you've just dangled the tea bag quite near to the cup, then pulled it away again.

    Lots of people put the milk in the cup, then the teabag, then the water......

    I do teabag, water, milk...

    What about you?
    It would depend entirely on what type of tea I was making.

    Put a tea bag and sugar in the cup, add water, remove tea bag and add a teeny bit of milk.

    For some reason, putting sugar in with the water seems to make it go dark quicker. Builders brew ftw!
