How to Brew Tea

Those Brits certainly take their tea seriously. This tutorial on proper tea-making is from 1941, which explains why they had to make hot tea with milk and sugar in vats for servicemen. Americans consume a lot of tea, too, but we do it quite differently. My husband drinks sweet ice tea, which I make up in gallons ahead of time. No milk, but plenty of sugar and lemon juice. I drink tea all afternoon and evening, after the coffee is gone. I use fancy but cheap tea bags and heat the water in the microwave. Steeping for 3-5 minutes would leave it too cold to drink! Also, I just drink tea. No sugar, no milks. Unless its masala chai, but that's a rare treat. (via I Have Seen the Whole of the Internet)
