In light of the Tea-break threads, I thought it would be fitting to discuss the methods and techniques which are used in order to produce the perfect cuppa. If you're feeling kind and offer to make the tea for your guests, how do you do it? My girlfriends parents follow the old school '2 tea-bags in a pot' kind of a brew, but I simply cannot accept this as an acceptable cup of tea. I've always had the '1 tea-bag per cup' approach. Or in these difficult economic times, do you try to cut back as best you can and even share tea-bags between cups? This sums up my perfect cup-of-tea quite well: Sorry for the dull thread, I'm finishing off my dissertation so this is procrastination as its finest.
