This is not how you make tea...
Please please please, never serve me a cuppa that has been made like this
The British are a simple people. We like tea, queuing and moaning about the weather. We don't have a great deal of things going for us, so take pride in that which we do. And then when someone messes with one of those things we get very annoyed, very quickly.
The tea-tantrum came when TikTok user @jchelle36 made a cup of tea using about a zillion ingredients.
The lack of tea leaves here leads me to believe this isn't actually tea. Just a terrible facsimile of the drink.
But not content with kicking this nationally precious hornet's nest just once, they go on to try and make "British Tea". Which goes about as well as to be expected at this point.
Why is the use of a microwave so infuriating? BUY A GODDAM KETTLE!
By now I was frankly seething, and have had to go and make a proper cup of tea, sit in the garden and just tut loudly until I was calm enough to go about my daily business again. WHY IS IT SO MILKY! WHO PUTS THE MILK IN BEFORE THE BAG! WHO USES A MICROWAVE? WHY DOES THIS BLASPHEMOUS VIDEO EVEN EXIST! Right. I'm off for another calm down and a cuppa, anyone want one?
