/hot drinks banter
just a splash of milk. please make it in a teapot if you can, i like it STRONG.
I do this because I don't understand how to make a strong cup of tea
how do you make strong tea then
peppermint tea ina pint glass, filled up halfway with boiling water to brew, then diluted with cold water up to the top.
thought it was pretty wanky but now i do it sometimes too.
I'd prefer it if you'd just let me make it myself
who have more than one sugar in tea. Wallybrains.
SHE'S WRONG. And I'm 23. I'll never be too old!
Everyone in the office hates me. I'm not overly specific with my tea order BUT I vary what I drink on a round-by-round basis. Could have a builder's tea, an Earl Grey, a darjeeling, a coffee (white or black, with or without sugar), or some loose white tea. Everyone else has exactly the same thing at exactly the same time like a boring fucker.
who makes it like you ask but somehow it's just never good
my boyfriend always says... 'can you click that kettle on' when he means 'can you make me a cup of tea', I know this because I always used to just make the tea when the kettle had boiled. As a test I decided to do just what he said and 'click the kettle on' and then just leave it and I noticed he'd never get up and make the tea.
Now, if he says 'can you make me a tea' I say yes of course darling and I do, but if he says can you click that kettle on, I just click the kettle on but I don't make the tea because I find it so annoying.
Is this passive aggressive? Am I mean?
and in my head at least I don't think ever ask to have a cup of tea made for me.
Morrissey was on it, he had very weak Ceylon tea or something. So brief a dunk of the bag it was basically water from what I could tell. What a prick.
I am not fussy, I just have black tea, no sugar. Same with coffee. They can leave the teabag in if they want or have it really weak, no worries. It is so simple it is often difficult to convey this to people, they ask how you want it then seem taken aback. Old people are very difficult, I ask for it black no sugar and they put milk in anyway sometimes. Or openly pull a face.
which is funny because London water is so rank that there's not an awful lot of point in getting pedantic about tea.
From some poncey independent coffee place a couple of weeks ago and the woman who served it basically put the milk in (and too much of it) immediately after the hot water, leaving no brewing time. It basically rendered it undrinkable.
I therefore have some sympathy with someone being very prescriptive when they're paying for someone to make them a cup of tea.
JUST DRINK YER FOOKIN' TEA
and then they pour it away because they like it a "certain way".
Fucking annoying. DRINK IT, IT'S NOT GOING TO KILL YOU.
used to use the skin tones of black people to describe the colour of tea he wanted :(
His business went under leaving him with nothing recently though <3
only on DiS.
What a tosser though.
Seems simple to me but boggles some peoples minds.
Any tea, assam is my favourite though. Ideally with some space at the top so I can drink it while it's still really hot.
Don't drink milk / don't like soy milk, particularly in tea. Prefer coffee by a country mile though.
that it's painful to watch. It's easier to just get them to make me coffee as it would be nearly impossible to screw that up.
Seriously though, putting the milk in before the tea bag has been taken out and adding the sugar AFTER that. What are you DOING!?
you a cup of tea and presents you with it seconds later (unless it's come from a pot). Either put the effort in or don't bother at all, I don't want your token gesture cup of weak swill.
it makes no difference if you pour the milk in before the tea has finished steeping?
just made a cup of tea and it wasn't very good
