How To Make The Perfect Cuppa Tea

Tea if you are a tea drinker, it has to be the way you like it or not at all and so to make your cup of tea the most perfect cup of tea you will need to know the ways of the tea bag, this is sort of like the term of phrase that is comparable to use the force, instead swing the teabag!

You will need a cup and to be a fancy fool a saucer, then you get one electric kettle or gas kettle and boil up some hot water, once this has boiled, you can do a few things, you can do all the fannying around with a teapot by pouring the water in there and adding a couple of teabags, or you can do the decent lazy thing of slipping a nice teabag in the cup and then pouring the hot water directly on the teabag in the cup, this lets all the lovely tea juice flow out of the bag and this is what is left on the cup, don't take your teabag out just yet.

If you take milk, then now is the time to add it, although not too much, that is if you don't like milky tea, many people don't bother with milk, as they say it detracts from the flavor, but I've always added milk, sugar is the same I don't drink tea with sugar, but I do coffee, strange eh?

Now take a small tea spoon and dunk the tea bag some more to get the full tea flavour, some say a full 30 minutes of dunking makes the flavour of the tea quite strong, you decide how strong you want it, now remove the tea bag and do a quick stir, your cup of tea is now ready and if you want to you can hold your little finger up in the air whilst you sip the nice hot tea, it looks posh don't you know.

There I bet you can now go and feel enlightened by this very informative hubpage about making the perfect cup of tea and make the best cups of tea ever now, tea is much better than coffee with all it's antioxidants and stuff and what better hang over cure than a sugarless cup of tea in the morning.

Simply brilliant, now where's my croissant and crumpet with good old english butter...ah thank you farmers wife!

      Yeah I know what you mean I tried to pick up that cup of tea and realised it was only a photo on screen, so I had to settle for my Hubpages mug instead!

      Cheer now Nancy!

      The Chinese go mad over tea!

      A great article and that cup of tea looked like you could pick it up and start drinking. I love tea, it’s my favorite drink and my great-great grandmother was from England so I grew up drinking tea every day, as I still do. My favorite now however is pomegranate---yum…

      Milky tea seems to taste of all hot water and milk and not any tea flavour for me, different people do different things with their teabags....ooh er missus!

      Tea is the perfect drink, I couldn't agree with you more, Waynet, except that for me, the milk always goes in the mug, with the teabag, and then I add the boiling water. To overcome the problem you had, of overtly milky tea, I only use the tiniest drop of milk: I always think too-milky tea has the strangest taste, reminiscent of slightly burning rubber.

      Thanks Pamela!

      I always drink tea and have got into trying herbal teas too, although I don't like nettle tea I do like peppermint and roseberry tea!!

      Very cute. I love real tea. But I gave it up some 35 years ago and had a terrible headache for at least a month. (Tanic acid and caffeine are in the tea.) I still love the aroma of real tea. I drink Celestial Seasonings Herbal Teas now.

      Your hub was so fun.

      I remember for years I used to put the milk in first and wonder why it would turn out quite milky, so I reversed the process and always have better flavoured tea now!

      I've just put the kettle on, would you like one? lol!
