    LOVE THIS!

    However sugar should not be allowed in tea, so should be taken off as an option all together!
    no sugar in tea?

    Big debate at TSR towers at the moment...

    When making a cup of tea do you put the milk in first before adding the hot water or after?

    I am aghast at these comments.
    The sugar brings out the flavour does it not?
    Utterly, utterly shocked.

    How is there even a debate about this?

    Water in first, milk at the end, every time.

    I'm sure randdom would agree.
    It depends how you are making the tea.

    If you are making it with a tea bag then it should go in second.

    If you are making it with leaves from a teapot then first

    Well everyone can agree you need sugar in teas like green tea?

    After hot water and steeping. Always.

    For coffee, however, milk in first then water

    How do you know how much milk to put in if you do it first??
    You need to observe that colour change when you put the milk into a cup of black tea :yep:

    Water first, stir the teabag for a bit to help it brew quicker, teabag out, milk in.

    I don't like the way they've named the poo-coloured one "smallest splash".
