Yea, like the description says, how do you brew your tea?

I usually put a cup of water in the microwave and then proceed to put down the tea bag (put not intended)... And then I add a fine bit if milk in it.

I usually have pre-made tea, I'm not even sure if we have a teapot or a kettle anymore.

I put the herbs in a tea pot and let them boil. I serve it with pastries or fruit.

I put my tea leaves in a custom teabag. I then put it in a cup of hot water that is made by my Keruig machine

In England, we place teabag in the cup first, pour freshly boiled water into the cup and (depending how hard the water is in your area) stir frequently for around two minutes. Strain and remove the teabag, add sugar (if desired), add more water if the teabag held too much water after straining, then add a splash of milk.

In London the water is very hard, so if it isn't stirred you will end up with a thin layer of.. I guess chalky sediment on top of the tea.. is harmless but doesn't look nice.

P.S. Don't listen to those who put cold milk in the cup first with the teabag.. heretics and neanderthals.

well I only drink iced tea so I just use the cold brew bags. I'll use 2 regular tea bags or a gallon sized one, since I like it stronger than others

I like mine hot with a very small amount of sugar, the same as my coffee.

I like any leaf tea that isn't flavoured.
(eg. Earl Grey, Lady Grey, English Breakfast, Rooibos, Assam, Ceylon etc.)

We just got a new kitchen and our tap is an all-in-one! So hot, cold and boiling water all straight from one nozzle. Makes making tea super easy. The boiling water tap can't use our water softener sadly so there's some sediment on top of the tea, but that's not an issue really haha.

At the moment it's boiling water onto teabag, then stir and brew for 2-4 minutes. A little sugar, and then some cold water in place of milk. I only stopped having milk recently, but it's delicious without it Planning to get a strainer and some leaf tea next time I'm at freeport and can go to whittards or something, but we'll see

I usually boil a pot of water and just dump it into a pitcher with two to three tea bags in it. I wait for it to cool after the brewing process or just use ice. No add on usually. I like drinking it with nothing added.

Boil water in a kettle, pour into mug with 2 green tea bags (1 is too weak), let it sit for a few minutes. Enjoy!

Can you believe some don't boil their water with a kettle? Peasants.

I have an electric kettle, I just boil the water with that, and then pour the hot water over the teabag, let it sit for 3-4 minutes to let the flavor get in, and then drink it.

No ice, no sugar, no anything added.



OCCASIONALLY I may have iced tea, but its rare, and only in the hottest part of the summer.
