    I put the tea bag in the mug while the water is boiling, once boiled and still boiling pour into the mug and leave for few mins to brew then squeeze the tea bag against the side then add a little bit of milk. I only put a tiny amount of milk in it has to be strong probably what is considered as builders tea, I can't stand milky tea

    Teabag, water then milk if in mug.

    Teabag then water in pot.... but milk first in mug if in teapot.

    Those are, I believe, the rules.

    I make Chai tea
    Doesn't take too long to make! 10/15 mins but trust me it's worth it!
    Serves 3 people
    Fill 1 and 3/4 mugs of water in a deep pan. Set gas/electric to medium to high
    Add grated ginger
    Add tea powder- 3 spoon ( Yorkshire tea is really nice!)
    And let it boil, until it becomes bubly and the ginger layer starts to rise
    Add a cup of milk
    Let it rise up to top, then immediately turn down the gas to low, until it settles down again and then turn gas to med to high again, to let it boil again.
    Repeat this 5 times
    After 3rd time add a small teaspoon of tea masala, but even without it tastes really nice
    Sieve the chai into cups
    Enjoy
