Often I have have purchased a much-needed cuppa only to lift the lid and discover a pale milky concoction with a teabag festering at the bottom; the tea having been made by adding the milk (often way too much of it for my liking) almost immediately after the hot water, therefore making the tea-brewing process redundant. It's barely possible to get more tea flavour out of a bag once the milk has been added. You wouldn't add milk into a teapot, so why put it in the cup?
And for this service they charge at least £1.50. It's so disappointing. And a rip off to boot!
To make tea – add boiling water to tea bag, let it rest/brew or squish the bag a bit, and then add milk if so desired. Satisfyingly simple!

Horrid things, teabags.ReplyDelete
I need a list of affordable places where it's just leaves in the pot.
I have to agree. I've yet to have decent cup of tea on any of trips to the UK.ReplyDelete
The only tea available within Olympia exhibition centre is priced at a scorching £2.20 and I discovered yesterday, that although you get to squish your own bag and add your own milk, it tastes awful. No tea flavour at all... I suspect the water isn't fresh because tastes metallic. Yeurch!ReplyDelete
On this topic I'm yet to find a better account than that given by George Orwell.ReplyDelete
That's fab, thanks. These days we get cardboard, plastic or polystyrene cups, even when 'eting in'. Ech!ReplyDelete
