How do you have your brew?
With all the talk about Brew Monday, it got me to thinking about what makes the perfect cup of tea. I've never found a foolproof technique for the perfect cuppa. I'm bad at gauging how long to leave it brewing or how much milk to add. I've had people tell me that I've made them the worst cup of tea they've ever had and then others say it's frankly the best. A cup of tea from me can be summed up as Schrödinger's Cuppa. Until you drink it, it's potentially both disgusting and delicious. So, I need some tips.
It's really about time I nailed down the life skill that is making a proper cup of tea. So, how do you make yours? Does there always need to be a biscuit? If so, what kind? Do you put the milk in first and if you do, what other disgusting things do you do with hot drinks? Show me a photo of your next cup of tea, or compare it to the colour chart above!
