    I heard that if you put the milk in first the tea bag doesn't brew properly. Something about the size of the milk molecules.:cool:

    I like my tea without water, I usually boil or microwave a mug of milk then add a teabag to it.

    Has to be whole milk not that skim junks.

    Everyone else I know adds the milk last, but I do it first. Partly because that's how I was taught to do it, and partly because if I don't add the milk first I can't accurately judge how much I need and it doesn't turn out right.

    I'm always getting complimented on my good cuppas

    Boil the kettle, put the teabag in the cup, add the boiling water, add the milk. Then I let it cool for 10 minutes before even attempting to drink it. And now after writing that I want a cup of tea!

    I make about >5 cups of tea a day....here is how :cool:

    Tea bag > Boil water to about 1cm from the rim of the cup > Milk
    Don't leave the bag for too long and don't put too much milk.
