If there’s one thing you don’t mess with, it’s the method with which tea-lovers make their favourite brew.
And one US mum has been ridiculed online for uploading a video to Tik Tok, claiming to show how Americans make British tea.
The bizarre video has since been slammed online, with people saying it hurts their eyes and they can’t believe the mum manages to get every step completely wrong.
First, the woman’s daughter fills a mug with water and then puts it in the microwave for a minute.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, she then takes it out of the microwave and pours the milk into the cup, right up to the top.
According to the mum, the next step is to drop your tea bag into the mug, add sugar and give it a stir.
“And that’s how you make hot tea,” she finishes the video, cheering the camera with a big smile on her face.
Unfortunately, her followers were less than impressed with her method, with many saying they were left ‘horrified’ by it.
“Tell me this is a joke. Please Google ‘tea’ just so you can see what it looks like and then look at that cup of milk you’ve made,” one person wrote.
“This is a crime,” another person wrote, while a another commenter said: “A bit of me died inside when I watched this.”
Other Americans also commented saying this is not how they make tea and they were just as confused with her method as everyone else.
It isn’t the first time the mum, who lives in the UK, has gone viral for her random take on making tea.
At the beginning of May, another one of her videos went viral when she showed her followers how she likes to make American hot tea.
She mixed instant tea with Tang (an artificially flavored drink mix), lemonade, sugar , cinnamon and cloves.
