The Burning Question*: When do you put milk in your tea?

On this Bank Holiday Monday, let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The working week looms ahead and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions…

This week: The heady topic of making the tea. And the many ways to combine the required teabag and water with milk.

For those with Irish mammies, you’ll recognise the ‘almost make the pot and put a drop of milk in the cup first’ approach. But for most people today, the tea is made in individual mugs.

So do you add the milk before or after you take the teabag out?
