She shared the brew on Reddit whilst captioning the image: "Mourn the teabag that died for this brew my boyfriend made me".
Without being insulting, it seemed that the contents of the black mug were more 'soup-like' and pale in comparison to a typical English Breakfast Tea.
When including the addition of foam on the rim of the cup, users were quick to question why on earth it looks like that, and what it is in the first place.
One said: "Did he make it from the cold tap? Did he reuse an old tea bag from the bin? I literally don't understand how it's possible to make tea that weak."
A second user was hopefully of teaching the user's partner a lesson and commented: "Get him to write out 2 pages of lines - I must not make terrible tea ever again.
"When he gives it to you don't even look at it and throw it straight in the bin. Maintain eye contact throughout. He needs to learn."
A third user said: "Divorce him. I know you're not married - Marry him, then divorce him for this blasphemy. A simple breakup will not serve as punishment for this hate crime."
Perhaps a slight overreaction.
Comparisons were made with 'chicken stock' and 'dishwasher water' as many of those in the comments section were left in utter disbelief.
The post has so far received over 30k likes and 2.8k comments.
If you're thinking 'why do people care so much about tea?' it's because, according to tea.co.uk, 84% of the British population drink tea and herbal infusions every day.
It is thought that approximately 100 million cups are made daily, which is almost 36 billion per year. Whilst the number of coffee cups made in a day are estimated at 70 million, which is 30% less.
Despite tea being extremely popular in Britain, China is said to be the largest producer of the famous brew, followed closely by India and then Kenya.
The website also claims that 98% of Brits take tea with their milk.
When it comes to the 'Battle of the Teas,' according to, statistica.com, 'PG Tips' was the most popular brand of tea in Great Britain last year, with PG Tips taking second place followed by Yorkshire Teas taking third and fourth spot.
