What is it about black tea that makes my mug scummy whilst milky tea does not?*
*this is not a racist thread.
yeah, makes sense. I drink it, after all.
Its just the leaves. Dilute them with milk, they don't hang around.
i've also noticed that some tea makers give you a cup with the scummy bits in, whereas some dont. its basically up to the individual tea maker as to how much scum you get, but no ones how to control it.
am I a teamaker?
like that britta water filter advert where there is no scum on the tea.
people. the ones that make the tea in the office. i've stopped making or taking tea from anyone else because they're all so bad at it. and they insist on giving me bad cups.
(ie when he gets it right). But when he gets it wrong, he leaves the tea bag in your tea. Once I had three teabags in my tea?!
He's a genius/psychopath of tea.
they literally and i do mean literally have no idea what they're doing. especially the germans.
Why can't I have a nice chinaman/indiawoman in the office to make my tea?
i'm going to make some fucking tea. thanks for the reminder.
just finished mine. Scum
although i'm complimenting it with hersheys chocolate, which is no compliment to anything.
I'm hiding this reply here though because I don't want thewarn to know.
nice one hyacinth.
I didn't see you ONCE.
Lipton is NOT TEA, Americans.
When I make the tea I put milk in first, then add the water, and there's rarely very much scum, but my housemates add the milk after and there's always LOADS. What gives?
and not raw sewerage?
I only ask because my tea is never scummy.
There's your scum avoidance sorted. Try making a scumless black tea, then get back to me.
-'Both come from the word "sewer" - first recorded in the 13th century, and meaning "a drain or ditch". Then, in 1834, with the invention of modern sewerage systems these two words were coined - with distinct meanings. The shorter word, "sewage", was coined to mean the waste matter that flowed through the sewers; while the longer word, "sewerage", was coined to mean the method of getting rid of the stuff - the method, or system, of disposal employing pipes was called a "sewerage system"... or just "sewerage" for short. And strictly speaking, that's what they still mean. Nevertheless, the similarity between the two words was bound to cause confusion, and within 20 years (by 1851) "sewerage" is being used as a synonym for "sewage". So we probably shouldn't get too fussed (or pedantic) about it'.
swig of it only to be greeted with the foulest chemical taste I have ever known. Turns out the kettle descaler stuff was still in there having been put in the previous night. I was not informed of this.
Thank you for reading.
you never know whats gonna be in there.
Who's up for a game of whats in Meths kettle?
Everyone knows that you boil eggs in the microwave.
One of those questions I've often wondered
would cook his Frankfurters in the kettle (communal). He also used to fry cheddar and eat it without accompaniment and smoke in Tesco.
i'm talking about the kettle flakes that appear (no our kettle does not have a filter).
Thats a hot fact.
lets hope pocketmouse is here.
I'm just saying. You won't get the scum if you use a fresh kettle of water. Only an idiot would boil water like 5 times.
In a moment of elderly madness, washed out a contact lens with bathroom cleaner. Up shot, burnt the top layer of her eyeball off.
Glass of organic white wine please, I'm a twat!
he cant have milk in his tea.
little more work needed though.
- Better not put any milk in your tea then.
scum is GONE
asking famous people what their favourite culinary dish was. Noel Gallagher's was...a cup of tea
VV Brown was not covered in Marmite. No.
You could argue that it adds a rustic dimension and makes for a more authentic tea drinking experience.
I mean I wouldn't, I think it's fucking disgusting, but there is potentially a case there.
He doesn't like SCUM.
This is my joke and I just thought of it so don't steal it.
and before you ask, yes, yes i went to art college.
do de doo de doo de dooooo
DUM DUM D-D-DUM DUM DUM!
haaaaaaartBEAT! bum bum
something happens to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I started drawing a train once with people smiling through the windows, but I coloured the background red which made it look like they were all getting the train to Hell.
I didn't, but I DID send in a picture to Blue Peter when the competition was to design an adventure playground. Mine was poorly rendered, but the basic premise was a load of stuff around a massive Dragon shaped slide.
The winning entry was a very well drawn massive Dragon shaped slide.
which was a picture of a tie followed by the word, 'land', as timmy mallet was in thailand.
i didnt send it in.
i was imagining Nick Berry getting depressed when all the cows had to be culled over Nights In White Satin.
cause all the cows to be culled?
I want to do something with Greengrass/Green tea. I can't tell you what it is yet though
*kicks corner straight into touch*

i almost swooned
Valerie Jean Solanas (April 9, 1936 – April 25, 1988) was an American radical feminist writer, best known for her attempted murder of Andy Warhol in 1968. She wrote the SCUM Manifesto which encouraged male gendercide and the creation of an all-female society.
I liked it! I didn't even go to art college.
I sort of get it.
but I only drink tea proffered by gypsies, criminals, and bereaved people, and I take all potential scum as a matter of course.
