Honestly, this is so bad that it’s hard for me to believe that she isn’t trolling us all.
I mean, first of all, she microwaves the water?!
I’ve had some tough times living with no electric kettle in the past (why are these standard in the British kitchen, but not the American one? I mean, I know why, but I don’t like it!). Despite the struggle, I know well enough to microwave my water in secret and in shame! It takes so much ceremony out of making a cup of tea and it makes your tea taste like popcorn water. Yuck.
Then there’s all that milk! Why microwave your water in the first place if you’re going to make it icy cold with a gallon of milk before you even consider the tea bag?!
Well, fortunately for my nerves, Buzzfeed writer Sam Cleal stepped up to give us “The real tea on British tea,” with a step-by-step guide and a TikTok of his own.

He’s the real hero of this story; I’m just some poor sap, clutching my black double-bergamot Earl Grey tea close to my chest in shock and terror. Are you as horrified by this as I am? Have you ever seen someone make something so wrong that you just had to say something? Let us know!
