Panic! At the high tea

By Anonymous - 01/11/2013 01:11 - United States - Vancouver

Today, while researching tea etiquette for Sunday's tea, I read, "To put milk in your tea before sugar is to cross the path of love, perhaps never to marry." I suddenly panicked that this very lack of knowledge is why I haven't met a man who wants to marry me, and that I never will. I'm only 23. FML

Wow. I always put my sugar in my coffee before the milk, even before reading this. Maybe I'm a natural-born lover? Still wouldn't explain why I'm single, though.

An even better reason to do sugar first is that the higher the temperature of the tea, the better the sugar will dissolve. Milk will cool it down a bit.

OP, enjoy yourself while you still can! It's up to YOU to decide when you're ready to marry/get married, not some stupid superstition...

I always put the sugar in the glass before I even pour the coffee/tea. I don't even need to stir it that way.

Probably single because men don't care about tea

omg. that moment when it all makes sense.

glass? isn't tea and coffee drank out of a mug or cup?

It depends on what type of tea it is.

I guess I'm gonna be forever alone because I don't put sugar in my tea.

I'm not thinking that's why OP

I did think that was common sense actually.

That's my reason too. Probably overthinking it, but I also hate seeing people put the milk in before the sugar. Or sweetener. And people who add milk and sugar before taking out the teabag are just gross. Even worse is when they leave the teabag in while drinking their tea.

I don't actually sweeten, just milk. Hope that doesn't screw me around somehow!

I leave my teabag in while I drink the tea sometimes. I buy those stringless tea bags, so i'd have to either stick my fingers in my tea or fish it out with a spoon. Too much hassle.

I leave the tea bag in because I am lazy and I think people who put milk in tea are weird.

I put sugar in first then milk, I'm in a loving relationship. So keep looking :)

Same here :) I would hope it still counts with honey vs sugar. Honey with tea and cream is amazing!

I prefer to put tea in my sugar. I guess I am really screwed then. And what if you use non dairy creamer instead of milk?

If it's due to necessity it's fine, otherwise you're another tea heathen.

I'm a heathen anyway, but that's a different story. Non dairy creamer is so much more fun than milk tho. And that might be slightly off topic. Tea anyone?

Why yes, my good chap, I would absolutely love some tea.

Be positive! Keeping that attitude might make things worse...

Use half and half. Problem solved.

It's all lies OP. I put milk in first all the time for years. I got married...then divorced, a couple of times now. I am reading the singles ads while drinking tea this very morning.

Then according to legend, you never found true love. So it rings true!

you say all that and then you state that you're "only" 23. hardly a fml when you already have so much self reassurance.

Forget tea, learn how to cook!

I wouldn't take stuff like that to heart. I find it highly doubtful that your love life depends on how you make your tea.
