    Personally, I think tea drinkers are the crazy people haha! It just smells and tastes and looks really bad!!
    I think that if an alien landed and someone introduced him by giving him tea, just the sight and smell would make him want to pack him bags :P
    Hot chocolate all the way!!

    Black, 1.5 sugars. If I'm feeling posh, and there's some lying around, I'll add lemon or mint

    I hate tea which is mint/berry or something unusual! It's got to be english breakfast (or maybe earl grey at a push!)

    Tea's better than coffee anyway :ninja:

    Hot, no sugar and with as much milk as possible for a tea flavour to still be detected - a teacher once pointed out to me that you're usually just paying for a bag and hot water, so I need the milk to get my money's worth!

    Mint and berry teas aren't really teas. I don't know what there proper name is.

    I know, but they're always branded "peppermint tea" or whatnot. And they're vile.

    Recently boiled, not boiling, water onto the bag. Leave it a couple of minutes and top up with milk. NO sugar. Leave the bag in. The tea should be dark browny/orange, as strong as possible

    One question for you guys:

    How do you squeeze the teabag?

    1. Squeeze against the side of the cup
    2. Squeeze it with fingers (often sizzling your fingers)
    3. use the milk cap to squeeze the teabag (to avoid burning fingers)
    4. Just chuck it out without squeezing with drips all over the worktop
    5. Other (please specify)

    I personally use the milk's cap to squeeze my teabag

    I used to think that I didn't take much milk in my tea, then this exchange happened:

    Friend: Harley, I'm making tea do you want some?
    Me: Okay
    Friend: Do you take milk?
    Me: Just a wee drop
    Friend: That ok?
    Me: Bit more.
    Friend: Now?
    Me: Bit more.
    Friend: How about now?
    Me: Can you put a tiny drop more in?
    Friend: Ok, next time say you take a lot of milk in your tea!

    As a matcha drinker, tea-making is an intricate and therapeutic process.

    1) Boil water
    2) Warm mug by filling with hot water
    3) Pour boiled water into pyrex jug and monitor temperature until it is ~70degC
    4) Empty mug, and using a small sieve add a teaspoon of matcha powder
    5) Decant the warm water into the mug until it is half-full
    6) Using an Aerolatte, whisk until frothy
    7) Sip and enjoy

    2 bags, 2 sugars, boiling water and left for 2 mins or thereabouts, then take the bags out and add a decent amount of milk.

    NO bag squeezing!! It makes the tea bitter.
