Help Me Make the Perfect Cup of Tea

Oliverstreet | Sep 28, 2007 07:20 PM

Hello. I'm somewhat embarassed to admit this, but I'm not sure I make tea correctly. Can someone please tell me:

-The correct method to make a single cup of tea (I can't bother with brewing or teapots since I'll be doing this at work with minimal gear at my disposal).

-Some good breands of loose tea or bags (preferably earl grey)

-Also, what's the etiquette with milk, lemon sugar? Can you put milk in tea while it's brewing? Are there certain teas that should not have milk?

Thank you for your guidance!
