Only if you’re using a teapot. If you’re just using a teabag in a mug it’s teabag first, then water, then teabag out then milk last.

The scientific argument for milk first only applies to unpasteurized milk, where there's a risk that the first little bit of cold milk you pour into a cup of hot tea might separate.

With modern pasteurized milks the difference is an entirely pointless argument.

It doesn't matter if you put milk in the cup before or after as long as you wash it thoroughly inbetween

What matters is that you stir in your sugar before adding milk
Adding milk both due to the solids and drop in temperature makes it much harder for sugar to dissolve evenly

I just get a 2 litre bottle of water, melt some honey in a cup, pour that in with a few rooibos teabags and milk then keep in fridge. Guzzle from bottle, no time for pinky shit.
That said, this nigga >>14189410 is correct.

>> No.14190114

Clickbait rubbish. Scientists do it that way to maintain the ISO standard, so that experiments can be repeatable. Not because it's the best way.

If someone did a study on the effects of tea on tiredness in humans, you'd have to be able to give all participants the exact same cup of tea. It doesn't have to be a delicious tea, just a consistent one.

>> No.14190130

Casein deactivates the antioxidants. Good tea doesn't need milk. Brits mostly drink bag shit.

>> No.14190168

It's purely a class question of snobbery

When brits first figured out how to produce porcelain it was sub par. The expensive stuff from China was able to handle a major heat change from the hot tea. The stuff they made in Britain would crack. So:

Upper classes who could afford real Chinese porcelain could put the hot ass tea in first
Working classes who could only afford the British stuff put the milk in first to mitigate that so their shit didn't break

It's just retarded Victorian class war bullshit that got embedded into the culture and makes no sense otherwise. Modern tea cups can handle the heat

>> No.14190191

do you mean homogenized?

also, to my understanding, there are nutrients of some kind in tea that are fat soluble, so the fat in milk would allow them to remain in tea if the teabag is present with the milk

So practically all black teas are shit? Because nearly every black tea across thr world with a few exceptions is drunk with adding some form of dairy to it, and the few that aren't are drunk with huge lumps of jam in it, lemon or something else added. (Russian Tea and such).

Time for you kiddos to see what a real scientist can do. Until you add the teabag, it isn't tea. So it is impossible to add the milk first. If you don't like it, go join a church.

>So practically all black teas are shit?
No, some people are just dumb enough to put milk into good tea as well.
>Why the fuck would you be buying the good shit if you are drinking 6 cups a day?
Because good tea isn't actually all that expensive.
