    So I'd like some opinions from the tea drinkers out there.

    Do you make you tea in a pot or in the mug?

    I always make tea in the pot, my old boss/workmates and my gran would look at you in disgust if you made tea in the mug.

    Mug, never drink more than 1 cup of tea at a time so a pot would be a waste unless I have friends over!

    Good!

    You can't properly brew tea in the cup, not enough people even have teapots now.

    Tea pot if I intend on having a few cups, if it is the morning I normally make it in a mug as I have the one before I go out

    Teapot only for multiple brewings, otherwise if I'm just having one cup then why make all that tea so most of it can stay there to get cold? As for those saying it tastes better how on earth would it taste better? you're just making a larger volume of the stuff, you guys are as bad as pretentious wine tasting douchebags.

    A mug if it's just a quick one at breakfast but if I've got time I'll make a pot, I usually drink several cups anyway.

    I'm taking a teapot to Uni with me

    Surely that's kind of unnecessary? Why transfer from pot to mug when you could just go straight to mug? :confused:

    Teapot if I want to drink a lot, but as it's summer it's usually just a mug at the moment.
    My friends told me I was stupid and didn't drink tea right once, because I put my milk in before pouring out of the teapot

    Teapot for exams or when I have an emotional emergency that involves a lot of tea!

    Usually, it's a mug. Though I am currently drinking tea from a paper cup on my lunch break at work its actually nice machine tea!

    This really, though I do have a tiny cafetiere that I use for making a perfect amount of fresh coffee in the morning, I guess I might try making tea leaves in there too, can't see why it shouldn't work

    Mug, only ever have one at a time! I do like the idea of a teapot though.

    More of a coffee person but on the rare occasions I want normal tea or green tea, I always use the mug.

    It's got to be in a teapot; it's silly questioning otherwise :yes:
