I spent some time in the UK and, although they drink a lot of tea and are famous for it, as a general rule, they ruin it.   It seems to be an attempt to brew it so strong that it becomes a syrup.

Confused | :confused: Which is why you'll find most Brits complaining about not being able to get a decent cup of tea when outside of the UK. BTW, my wife's family, (originally from Pakistan), make something that I don't even recognise as tea!
