Not Your Cup of Tea? Netizens Debate the Best Way to Make 'Chai' and We're Loving It
What's the best way to make tea?

If there's one thing that people are possessive about, it's their cup of tea. Everyone has their own idea of how a cup of tea should be like and how it should be made. So, let me throw the question over to you, what is the correct way of making tea, or chai, as we lovingly know it?

A rant by a Twitter user, Joel Gilby, on Twitter has sparked a debate about how tea should be made. Gilby tweeted, "simply can’t trust people who don’t leave the tea bag to steep in the cup for a bit. you think you can get enough depth of flavour just by squashing it a lot with the back of a teaspoon? the arrogance. the ego. leave the room and walk away from it."

To be honest, squashing the tea bag with the back of the spoon is JUST NOT COOL. That is NOT how you make tea! That is NOT how you get flavour!

Naturally, thousands of followers from all over tweeted and retweeted the post expressing their solidarity in the matter:

So, how do you make it?
