American ‘Tea Butcher’ Sparks Outrage Over ‘British Tea’ Tiktok Tutorial and With Very Good Reason

American ‘Tea Butcher’ Sparks Outrage Over ‘British Tea’ Tiktok Tutorial and With Very Good Reason

There are many ways to serve a cup of tea – with or without sweetener or sugar, with or without milk, cup or mug etc. We can all agree that we each like our tea in many different ways. After all, there is the old expression “not my cup of tea” to describe something that isn’t quite your style.

Having said that, there is a very wrong way to make a cup of tea. And this UK-based mother and daughter from the US seem to tick off every no-no there is.

It all started when a woman known only as Michelle took to Tiktok to explain how “this American girl makes tea”, causing a shockwave throughout the tea-drinking world and sending saucers clattering to the ground in absolute horror.

Firstly, Michelle shared how she makes sweet tea, something that we Aussies might call iced tea.

In her second video, Michelle shares her secret on how to make a weird concoction she calls tea.

Gathering up all her ingredients, she says: “Hey guys so I get a lot of questions about hot tea, so today I wanted to show you what this American girl likes as hot tea.”

We now understand that the big clue was her use of the words “as hot tea”.

And now we come to Michelle’s latest video: her attempt at making “British tea”. I feel the need to place a warning of some sort here, but we’re already in so deep I think you understand the level of insanity you’re about to watch.

Needless to say, Brits are downright horrified.

And to sum up the general feeling of everyone in the UK:

In case you were wondering how to make tea, here is a better plan:
