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:
- When the kettle has boiled, pour a little of it into a teapot, swirl it around and tip it out again.
- Put a couple (or three, depending on the size of the pot) of tea bags into the pot.
- Bring the kettle back up to the boil, and then pour the boiling water as quickly as you can into the pot.
- Let it stand for two or three minutes, and then pour it into a cup.
- 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.
- If you pour milk into a cup of hot tea, you will scald the milk.
