American TikTok User Goes Viral With 'Gross' Tea Tutorial

American TikTok User Goes Viral With 'Gross' Tea Tutorial

An American TikTok user has gone viral after sharing a controversial tea tutorial that social media users have dubbed 'wrong on every level'.

You see, tea drinkers take their craft very seriously. Very seriously indeed. And this means that anyone who threatens to ruin the fine balance of hot water, tea and milk - just the right amount of milk, remember - and thus tarnish the art of the brew is taken down faster than you can say, 'Digestive biccie, anyone?'

An American woman called Michelle, who goes by the handle of @jchelle36 on TikTok, decided to share a tutorial video showing the world how to make a nice cup of 'hot tea' or 'British tea'.

Along with her daughter, Michelle - who lives in the UK and has more than 166,000 followers on TikTok - proceeds to fill a mug with water from the tap and pops it into the microwave for a minute.

Her daughter then pours an inordinate amount of milk into the mug of, er, microwaved water, before dropping the teabag in.

"Add the sugar!" Michelle says in the voiceover, while her daughter pours approximately an entire packet of the sweet stuff into the mug.

"Give it a little stir, and that's how you make hot tea!"

Understandably, tea drinkers feel pretty stung by the video, which was also shared on Twitter and soon racked up nearly 5,000 retweets.

Someone else wrote: "That is 95% wrong - and to be clear I've only given the 5% leeway because she used a teabag and not a banana."

American Man Goes Viral For Honestly Reviewing UK Carvery On TikTok

Another angrily said: "That is NOT how you make 'hot tea'. In the UK we make 'tea'. We boil a kettle, let the water come off the boil, pour it over the teabag. Leave to brew for a few minutes, then teabag removed and any milk and sugar added. And THAT is the modern quick way. It really needs a teapot."

A fourth added: "Don't worry everyone, I've reported the tweet. Wasn't sure what to categorise it as so I did it under everything. It's wrong on EVERY level."

Others speculated that it was either set up or a 'joke' saying the video had to be 'too gross to be anything other than a p***take'.

But someone else hit back saying it could well be real, claiming: "Nope, an American friend said they use the microwave if they make tea they don't have kettles."

Teabag in mug. Add hot water from the freshly boiled kettle. Leave to brew for five minutes. Stir in a little bit of milk. No sugar. DONE.
