Are englishmen really this big of jerks about how people enjoy their tea?

No you absolute fucking buffoon, you're supposed to dunk it two to three times as to ensure it steeps completely. It needs to be a little active, THEN you leave it. What utter trite!

Why would you put lemon in EG? It’s already got enough citrus from the bergamot.

But no one minds because they produce excellent food. Brits produce actual slop that no one besides brits actually enjoys. When you're autistic and your cuisine is shit then you should be ashamed

My steps for making tea this time of year:

1. Boil water
2. Add tea bag
3. Add three table spoons of honey
4. Squeeze an entire lemon into tea
5. Drink

Meanwhile Brits die from scurvy.
>>
>>14326492

not really, take it however you want, i rarely drink tea/coffee as a englishman, its just a post by some faggy 19 year old uni student

>>14326492
brits desperately clag onto their supposed "culture" just so they can pretend to be superior and different to americans when they're the inbred granpa.
Moroccans have a say on how to make some actual fucking tea.
>>
>>14326492
I think this is less bitching about how to make tea and more about how Brits make tea. He's complaining about a lack of verisimilitude in somebody's fanfiction set in Britain. It would be like if somebody wrote a story set in Manhattan and everyone made coffee by boiling their electric kettle and pouring the water into a cup with instant coffee granules in it.
>>
>>14326492

absolutely ridiculous, yeah right lemme leave my teabag in for one (1) minute so i can get that hot water that looked at a leaf taste

Yeah some people here in the UK like to make out that making tea the British way is some kind of Heisenberg tier formulaec operation.

I'm sure there are Americans that drink tea black with lemon in it and shit and are like "ah how the British live" and that is triggering to some but at the end of the day who cares.

Reminder that the "British food bad" meme comes from mentally-deficient American soldiers who were stationed in southern England in WW2 in preparation to invade France. Food in the country was being rationed at the time and thus all the various establishments that the Americans were staying in could only serve them rationed goods.

However, Americans, being the retards they are, believed this was normal, staple British food that everyone ate before the war started, and so spread word around to their equally retarded American friends and family back home. And the rest is history. The meme literally comes from American stupidity.

What a fucking retard.
The Indian way to tea is so much better.
1. Boil some loose leaf Assam tea in water, with ginger scrapes and crushed cardamom. You can add a pinch of fennel seeds too, gives it a subtle aroma.
2. Add cold milk when it comes to a boil, let it simmer and add sugar - according to taste.
3. Take it off the heat when it reaches a slow boil, through a sieve into your cup. Now that's a fine cup of chai, and no - it's not called "chai tea" you uncultured motherfucker.

They're similar but the taste isn't comparable, depends on the composition I guess. I tried Pickwick English Breakfast Tea because that's the only decent black Tea I could find here but ehh. Fuck that fruity and green bullshit, when I'll visit home after Corona thing ends, I'm bringing back some nice Brooke Bond or Tetley Chai variants with me. Assam Tea or Darjeeling Tea or even cheapo Indian tea has a different aroma than teas labelled as "Breakfast Tea" or English black tea or something. You can also just buy Masala Chai or Chai latte mixes but I'm not a fan + they're overpriced.

East Frisia has a distinct tea culture. They have their own blend of Assam teas and they add a drop of cream to make a cloud. Sweeteners are rock candy only.

As >>14331994 said the rest of Germany is more into coffee than pure black or green teas, with sawdust fruit blends being a top contender and herbal teas following. If my own statistics
observing friends/family/colleagues and looking into other peoples' shopping carts are to be believed that is.
According to sales stats pure black and green teas, loose tea at that, are apparently the most commonly bought teas, but I take that info with a grain of salt

I love Pitcairn, they might have the most based national origin story of all time: literally kicking an aristocratic cunt off his own ship and using that ship to take bunch of polynesian sluts (with ambiguous consent) to a secret island where they declare themselves kings and make a goorious nation where their sons enjoy the pleasures of their loli offspring for over 200 years until outsiders catch wise and put them in time out.

Lemon is there to get rid of tannins, not because it tastes nice. You also don't add milk to tea when you add lemon juice, because it would curdle and make sort of cheese.
I would expect British to know this.
I would also expect from nation which has one pipe for cold and one for warm water to know that some water is undrinkable and needs to be boiled to be safe to drink and because boiled water tastes like shit people make tea or fake coffee...
And I double dare you to drink black tea from jug after it goes cold without lemon juice added.

No. Americans, especially the sweet tea and Arnold Palmer drinkers don't think about Brits in the least. My father-in-law refers to GA and the greater south as the "entire world" in his stories. Modern Americans have no connections to Brits at this point. The ones who are most aware of British culture or have any interest at all in it would probably be in New England. But even then, no one really cares. There's lots of romanticization of France and Italy. It's fashionable to bring French cheese plates and Italian olive oil and vinegar to parties on plates with the eiffel tower painted on them and stuff like that. It's annoying as fuck as there are people who refer to themselves as "Francophiles" (I knew some who did this) and use French words randomly. But no one ever does this with England and British stuff. At best we've got people with Irish heritage who like to celebrate that but the Irish are hated historically and no one wants to be like them. Brits fall even lower on the totem pole. I don't even have anything against Brits, but I hope this clears up where Brits fall in American culture.

Here's an anecdote to add to how little the average American raised with American state education knows or cares about Britain. My husband and I are weaning off coffee for several reasons, so I made some black tea yesterday for breakfast. He said it felt kind of effeminate to drink tea and like it's not a man's drink like coffee. I told him about the British empire, the East India Company, and wars over tea including the American Revolution in hopes that it would help him not associate tea with weebs and faggoty modern brits and euros. He legitimately had no idea many men fought wars and conquered nations over tea and how much it contributed to trade and the English empire. This makes my husband sound pretty dumb, but it's a reality that Americans don't know jack shit or care in the least about Brits.

To be fair, we can't really blame you for distancing yourselves from us, given we had that whole tyrannical bent going on when you were just a colony.

Kek imagine believing this. Colonists kept starting wars they were told not to and Britain had to keep footing the bill. Eventually they said enough and decided to intoduce taxes to cover some of the costs. Jews/Illumiinati used this to rile the colonists and they had their autistic fit.
