How do you make a cup of tea?!

Question: How do you make a cup of tea!?
My granny always used to warm the pot then add freshly boiled water to the tea bags in the pot!. Then she used to put a woolly cover on the pot and leave for five minutes!. She swore blind that to do it any other way would ruin the tea,

I put a bag in a mug and add water!. Tastes fine to me!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You make your cup of tea right!. :)
If you want milk and sugar add it!.

Your Granny on the other hand, makes tea as it sounds like she was serving people with it and that they would all be sitting down having a long conversation, hence the warming of the pot and the woolly cover!.
It's so her tea in the pot will be hotter for longer and she won't be continuously getting up and making tea every 10 minutes or so!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

tea making is a complete art
theres tea, then theres great tea!.

if your making it with the kettle, you've got to put your teabag in the cup, and verry slowly pour the water directly onto the centre of the teabag!. then leave the tea to sit for about five minutes, then take the tea bag out and add a little milk!.
perfect tea! :] Www@FoodAQ@Com
