    step 1: Get a mug, the bigger the better.
    step 2: fill your kettle with the desired amount of water.
    step 3: boil kettle
    step 4: while your kettle is boiling, add your desired choice of tea-bag, my personal prefferance is clipper, although you may prefer the likes of pg tips or tetley.
    step 5: next, add your desired amount of sugar, I prefer 3 teaspoons, however, when i'm in polite company I ask for 2 as to avoid being judged by hot-beverage snobs.
    step 6: once your kettle is boilled, add the water to your mug.
    step 7: stir until black, if you prefer a stronger cuppa, leave it to brew for a few minutes.
    step 8: throw away teabag.
    step 9: add milk if desired, just a splash will do.
    step 10: pour it on a baby.
    step 11: enjoy.

    lol
    OK back on topic.
    I must point out, good sir, that i disagree with your step 5.
    Sugar in tea is like french kissing your girlriend after she has given you a Blow Job - i dont do it as it tastes like shit.
    thank you and good night.

    optional - thought this was a CONCISE guide.
    trolololol
    And where is the step where you get a rich tea biscuit - dunk it in.
    then it breaks off and you have to deal with a floater....

    no
    i'm all about tea
    lets get this straight

    you add water and then add a splash of milk while the bag is still in there. let it brew for quite a while until its the colour of hip hop honeys

    dont add sugar

    people disagree with my method but always prefer my tea.

    i hate people who add milk first, even when making coffee

    I like a nice strong brew with no sugar! I have to take the tea bag out first before addding the milk not that it would make any difference

    accidently left the tea-bag in the other day and couldn't help but wonder why my cuppa was getting gradually stronger.

    try it!
    the difference is subtle but rewarding. be careful to get your milk quantity correct.

    also the milk added during brewing stage cools it down enough for immediate consuming once brewed.
