Question: How do you make a cup of tea?
(British) Foreigner’s answer:
But normal tea requires just boiling water, proper tea in a teabag, milk, a biscuit, and the correct mug.
Using the wrong mug will can cause unpardonable offense. Don’t do that.
Otherwise the big secret is: you honestly can’t go wrong.
U.S. Citizen’s answer:
