DANGER: The above instructions will result in painfully (perhaps dangerously) Strong Tea
It will also be a nasty colour and taste.
Why? Two reasons:
- One for the pot is a bad idea. It results in Strong tea. 0.7 teabags per person is about right. (And I am not a merkin either :-)
- Putting the milk in first should be criminalised. My mother says it gives you ginger babies, but that's not why I think it's evil. It's wrong because of the resulting flavour (which cannot be described) and the colour, which is actually ginger (hence the ginger babies theory I suppose).
