Five Things That Happen When I Make A Cup Of Tea

You all know that I love a good cup of tea, right? Well, when I make one, a few things usually happen, and I thought I would tell you five of them.

  1.  . I will, at some point, spill tea leaves everywhere.

It doesn’t matter how hard I try, for some reason, the tea leaves just don’t want to stay on my spoon. This means that even though I don’t actually drop or spill the tea leaves, I still create one hell of a mess.

2. I will, at some point, use too many tea leaves.

I never know how many to add to my infuser, and more often than not, end up either adding too much, or not enough. This often means that my cup of tea either tastes extremely strong, or has no flavour at all. It also doesn’t help that some brands use different strengths of flavouring.

3. I can never tell what flavour of tea i’m making.

Every single type of tea comes in either  undescriptive boxes or bags, and of course I can’t read the label, so end up looking like a complete nutter sniffing the bag and trying to play guess the flavour.

4. I will, at some point, end up eating tea leaves.

I think this has to do with the size of the leaves and my infuser, as it doesn’t matter which tea I make, a few tea leaves always fall through the holes of my infuser, and end up in my cup. This means that without realising it, I end up eating a few tea leaves that have gotten through, and are quietly sitting at the bottom of my cup, just waiting for me to nearly choke on them.

5. I always end up burning myself.

The way that I figure out how much water I have in my cup, is to stick my finger in it. I know it’s dangerous, and I know that I could get a device that tells me the water is at the top, but they never work for me. I’m about 99% sure that I don’t actually have any finger prints left on my index fingers, haha!

There are quite a few more things that happen to me when I make a cup of tea, but I thought I would just tell you five of them.

What happens to you when you make a cup of tea? What’s your favourite flavour and brand of tea? Please let me know down below.

  1. As someone who is totally blind and brews multiple blends of loose leaf tea every day, I think you’re making a bit of a mountain out of a molehill on this one.

    If you use a tea caddy instead of a bag, getting the tea out without spilling it everywhere becomes much easier.

    The more tea you drink, and the more favourite blends you ackquire, the easier it becomes to measure the right amount into your cup. Either over or under-filling your infuser probably shouldn’t be the norm.

    If you honestly can’t tell the difference between your different blends by smell alone, maybe you should buy some blends that actually have some character about them? As with pretty much any product, you’ll find that there are limp, weak blends of loose leaf on the market, but also full-bodied ones that are full of flavour. If you’re drinking the ones that fall into the former camp, and making a mess of each cup to boot, there’s not much improvement over a teabag.

    • The post is just about my experiences, just like my other five things posts, and is meant to be a light hearted tongue in cheek bit of humour, but I’ll take your comment on board.
