the proper way to make tea: do whatever the fuck you think tastes good. if you find that you like the taste of looseleaf, go for it. if you take comfort in using the same kind of teabag that you grew up using when everything went to shit and all you had left to make the world right again was a box of teabags sitting in your kitchen cupboard? awesome. like sugar and milk? good. don’t? ok then. this is honestly the dumbest argument i have ever seen, i hate tea snobs. regardless of what you think, how you take your tea does not, in fact, reflect upon your personality or intellectual abilities. how you react to how others like their tea, however, can prove how much of a douchenozzel you really are.
