Anywhere between 3 and 5, but it has to be made with tea-leaves and allowed to steep for a couple of minutes or so

I have never been able to manage to drink tea. As an English man I have often thought I should like it but I just don't. It smells horrid, it tastes foul, and worse it makes me feel sick after just one mouthful.
Reminded me of Ted Lasso🤣
When asked how he takes his tea
"Well, usually I take it right back to the counter, because someone's made a horrible mistake."

"Tea is horrible. Absolute garbage water. Don't know why you all do that."

"Be honest with me. It's a prank, right? The tea? Like when us tourist folks aren't around, y'all know it tastes like garbage?"

4 but I rarely drink tea. If I do it’s from proper leaves in a pot with a wee centre piece that looks like a hop spider and it results in a good rich strong cup of tea. Add a small drop of milk and it’s perfect.

It's certain proof that the Chinese really hate us. And the Indians are on their side, too! 🐼

I have to say I am a big coffee fan. However I also have not been into one of those high street chains, nor will I as having had a sip of someone else's drink many years ago I realised that, despite their claims, they don't sell coffee at all. I don't know what it is but it doesn't tast like coffee to me.

Tea has to be brewed long enough that it's on the verge of being stewed. Then as little milk as possible, almost as if you just dip the spoon into the milk and however much coats the spoon is the right amount to add.

Oh, and it has to be YORKSHIRE tea. Best brew in the world

Cheers Tom
