PG Tips - the tip of bag floats on the top so you can pick it out with your fingers and give the bag a squeeze and save yourself dirtying a spoon. You're welcome ;)

A splash of milk ONLY AFTER the bag has been removed. People who put milk in before adding hot water need to be fired of in to outer space


I like you. Water should be boiling though, to the point the kettle is still shaking violently as you pour.

I can't be the only one that reboils the kettle even if I know it just stopped boiling five seconds ago? It has to be poured less than a second from the click or it's just not right.

Takes me ages to find a new mug always go through 5 or 6 until I find one that feels right.

Thin walled bone China cup is the only way for decent tea.

Coffee can go in whatever. The bin preferably.

I have my own supply of Twinings English Breakfast at work as the office tea ranges from gooseberry fool like CoOp own brand to Yorkshire Tea.

Must be fresh, boiling water. Must leave it for somewhere between 3-4 minutes. Add enough milk so it's the same colour as a standard manila envelope. Mud doesn't matter although I quite like my Denby mugs as you can fit a gooseberry fool ton of tea in them.

Making tea in the office is a minefield. Do they take milk? Answers range from Yes to Milky. Yes to milk? What the strawberry float does that mean? How much milk? Not to mention the tea some people come out with....taking the tea bag out after 30 seconds.... :dread:

I don't make any drinks at work. This is how someone has their tea: "half water, half milk, with two sugars"

It is an abomination.
