How to make the perfect cup of tea

How to make the perfect cup of tea

Hands up if you've got a free teabag recently? I bet you're wondering what to do with it...

Taken from The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams, I have outlined his tips below:

  1. When the kettle has boiled, pour a little of it into a teapot, swirl it around and tip it out again.
  2. Put a couple (or three, depending on the size of the pot) of tea bags into the pot.
  3. Bring the kettle back up to the boil, and then pour the boiling water as quickly as you can into the pot.
  4. Let it stand for two or three minutes, and then pour it into a cup.
  5. If you like it with milk, then it's probably best to put some milk into the bottom of the cup before you pour in the tea.
  6. If you pour milk into a cup of hot tea, you will scald the milk.
