    Following on from the epic tea debate, a different discussion on whether to put in the water or the squash first arose in the thread and this needs to be put to rest.

    a) squash first, then fill with water

    b) Water first then top up with squash

    c) simultaneously pour in squash whilst filling up with water

    Yea but what happens when you accidentally put in too much squash then don't realise until the glass is full.

    You then either have to drink weird strong squash until you can add more water or have to throw some away to make space.

    WHAT? It's clearly 1 to 5 or 1 to 10 with double concentrate...

    I think a new thread needs to be made to settle this as well now.

    Squash goes in first. Otherwise it's too weak.

    Surely if you left enough room at the top you could make it the same strength?
