As one of our newest members pointed out, in my animation from my Uni days, I used to make tea backwards.

Milk then water, but, now I'm a water then milk guy. Everyone makes their tea differently, and heck, some of us even like that awful drink coffee!
What do you drink? How do you take it?

I'm an avid tea drinker. Hate coffee. Don't know how people can drink it.

But anyway, tea with milk and two sugars. Ideally English Breakfast Tea. And it's gotta be tea bag, hot water, then milk and sugar. No other way around it.

I don't understand the coffee thing either. The smell of it is lovely, the taste, not so much.
I like a good cup of Breakfast tea too, no sugar though! Sweet enough etc ;)

Yeah, Coffee smells great, but it's just so bitter! I made the mistake of accepting a cup of it on Wednesday morning at work. Bad idea, cause I had such a bitter taste in my mouth till lunch!

I think I'm just a sugar addict. :p

I love both tea and coffee. With lots of sugar. Yep.
As for how I make it, it's usually sugar first, then water and then milk. But if you put the milk in coffee first, it makes it less bitter supposedly. I've never noticed a massive difference myself.

I just don't get coffee at all. It's horrible stuff.

It gives me that kick I very so often need whereas tea is a more relaxing, after college beverage (at least for me). Although I do go more often for Mocha myself- combo of coffee and hot chocolate. Now THAT'S the good stuff.

I use Pepsi for the kick that I need, when possible. But that's not really relevant...

I only drink coffee.. never found the taste for tea.
What sort of coffee would you recommend for an amateur coffee drinker? By amateur, I mean I can't even stand it a little bit :p Ease me in!

Coffee drinker here. But in either case, milk first is wrong and anyone that does it has some kind of backwards topsy-turvy world-logic I just can't get my head around.
Milk last. Always.

See, I've always done milk first for coffee, and last for tea...

Now that's just a special new level of crazy Matt. :p Though I remember Typo always saying to use hot water as opposed to still boiling water for coffee, so there may be logic in that particular madness. Still hot water always for tea though, what use is milk on a teabag?

I've not heard of that one before. Normally it's just straight out of the kettle and into the cup. Milk on a teabag just does not work, as I said earlier. It doesn't infuse properly, since the milk is too dense.

I only used to put my milk in 5 seconds before the hot water. Always got the milk out the fridge while the kettle boiled, poured it in, put it back, click, water in. Jobs a good'un.
