So this is one of life's important questions. when you drink tea, do you put the milk or the water in first?

I personally prefer the milk in first as it allows me to judge if i have a good ratio of milk to water because i can see how much of the cup is left to fill up with water. i also think it tastes sort of better that way which probably sounds stupid but i do lol


Anyway, what's the pit's opinion on the matter?

With Tea, and most hot drinks, you have to put the water in first or the flavour won't diffuse properly leading to a weak drink.

This is correct.

Putting the milk in first is retarded, unless you pour it from a teapot, which you don't do unless you're posh.

I'll try very hard not to be a snob here, but it is frightful to put milk in first!

Tea leaves in pot -> boiling water ->(three minutes)-> pour into mug -> dash of milk.

FREDIT: ^ Even then it's awfully incorrect.

Hot water + Steeping of tea leaves = tea.

How hard can this be?

I put the milk in my mouth and swallow it before I drink any tea.

I read that some scientist did research and found out if you put the milk in after, it scalds it if the water is too hot.

Then again, what sort of scientist researches this sort of shit?

This is how you should do it:

Quote by George Orwell
Tenthly, one should pour tea into the cup first. This is one of the most controversial points of all; indeed in every family in Britain there are probably two schools of thought on the subject. The milk-first school can bring forward some fairly strong arguments, but I maintain that my own argument is unanswerable. This is that, by putting the tea in first and stirring as one pours, one can exactly regulate the amount of milk whereas one is liable to put in too much milk if one does it the other way round.

That's fantastic, from his essays, right? I have a huge collection of all of them, filled with some wonderful writings. I think one could probably use them as a guide to life.

Water. Whenever i drink it with milk first it tastes weird.

WTF is up with people putting inthe sugar while the bag's still in there, though?

It ain't right, man!
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.

I ain't one...i love my tea.
Water first-> Let simmer & spread -> Add a little milk -> sugar -> Yum.

Tea and milk is srsly some epic shit. I've had it numerous times going to school and the only thing I've ever accomplished is to scare away all the wimminz with my icky milktea breath. Now I drink flavored Earl Greay with sugar, and nothing else.

Besides, the only thing milk is ever good in -when it's warm- is coffee.

Milk first saves the need for a spoon as you don't have to stir, in my experiences anyway.

I don't have tea like you do apparently. Also, warm tea tastes like shit.

It is indeed. Orwell is a total legend, probably my favourite author of all time. Especially his biographical stuff, like Down and Out in Paris and London and Homage to Catalonia. I've only read a couple of his essays, though.

Water, for some reason I get the idea that if I put the milk in first it'll create a weird paste.
