    why can no fucker other than us make it? There was that woman that went viral a couple of weeks ago ( won't post it as it may have been click bait ) but the Yanks with their Lipton shit, the Europeans with their UHT milk no-one seems to understand. The water has to be boiling ( bag or leaf ) so that it steeps ( hence the "warming the pot" ritual in making a pot of tea) whereas coffee can be made or consumed with water that isn't still boiling. The choice of milk...red, green, blue is personal as is sugar, some or none but the idea that you can lob cold water in a mug with a tea bag and some milk and sugar and give it 3 mins is virtually an act of war - heathens the lot of them.

    Actually Aussies and Kiwis make it just like Englanders.
    We have Tetley, Yorkshire, Lipton and a few others like Billy tea.


    Give me a nice fresh coffee anyday.

    All the milk over here is white, except for chocolate milk. Obviously.

    I had just made myself a brew then remembered one I had in Spain 2 years ago - insipid with full fat UHT - it was tea only because it said so on the menu - fucking dreadful

    First time I've ever bought a bag of milk was in Canadia.

    Tea, the Great British Solution.

    Many a problem has been solved over a good cup of tea.

    And the OP is right about others who should be at the very least, imprisoned for their crimes against Tea.

    Chai in Turkey is good, black tea in a glass. Very refreshing when the sun is beating down.
