How to Make Tea: From someone who can do it right

Hello ladies and gentlemen, my blog today is a lesson in how to make a cup of tea. Many times have I experienced heartache from hearing how somebody makes a cup of tea incorrectly. None of that milk on top of the teabag whilst it's still in the mug nonsense. None of this "teabags must have tags" poppycock, and especially none of this "Earl Grey tea no milk and honey" balderdash...
The perfect tea comes with choosing the perfect ingredients. Semi Skimmed milk is the only milk worth having, and Cravendale whilst pushing the budget a little is simply superior to your average bottled milk.
First, assemble ingredients.
Next, take your teabag out of the box. This would normally go straight into the mug, but for documentation purposes, I have placed it on top of the box of the superior brand of tea bags to any others you will find - PG Tips.
After the kettle has boiled, pour in the water on top of the tea bag. This bit doesn't take much skill, but if you mess it up be prepared to suffer the highest consequences.
Drain the teabag by squeezing it against the side of your mug using the spoon. Make sure to do it enough times so you feel satisfied. Next, place the required amount of sugar into your tea. I like two spoons, tea without sugar is a tea not worth having, but too much can cause an unpleasant experience as you reach the bottom of the mug.
After stirring in the sugar to let dissolve, pour in the milk. Look fondly at your mug as the milk and tea swirl together in a mesmerising and picturesque spiral of happiness. Soon they will mix, and soon you can drink.
Your tea is done. Your work is done.
Sit back, relax and enjoy!
