The 13 types of tea drinker

We’re not all the same, you know.

TEA IS IMPORTANT to us Irish people.

It’s the best way to start and end a day, and at the right moment it can do wonders for your overall well-being.

But we all have our own ways of appreciating and interpreting the fine art of tea making.

Here are 13 different types of tea drinkers.

Also known as “boiled milk” due to its pale colour and absolute lack of any, y’know, tea.

Brewed for ten minutes with only the slightest dash of milk. Preferable characteristics: a deep brown colour and a rusty taste. Mmm.

These are generally students who can’t afford milk.

The sugary tea people

Three spoons? Maybe you’d just prefer boiled sugar water?

The people who put the milk in first

Probably one of the more divisive aspects of tea-making. Some say it aids in cooling down the tea. Some say it’s just nonsense.

The picky tea drinkers

Brewed for exactly 2 minutes, with one splash of milk, one sugar. And don’t forget their favourite mug.

They have no tea preference, just whatever you’re having yourself.

The people who always need a little treat with their tea

If you’re not going to bring out the biscuit tin, you might as well forget about it.

The die-hards

The ones who always welcome a cuppa. Even during this summer’s heatwave, they craved their hot mug of cha. You have to respect that.

We’ll stick to the original, thanks.

The people who forget about their tea and reheat it in the microwave

This has to be some sort of punishable offence.

The people who never finish their tea

You make them a cup of tea, lovingly, taking extra care to brew it perfectly and add the right amount of milk..and they leave about a third of it behind. Not. On.

The people who don’t drink tea at all

That’s Sir Ian McKellan giving you the stinkeye over his own cuppa because WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.
