How dark do you go? Brits divided on the correct shade of tea

Nothing divides the nation quite like the humble cuppa, and it seems the debate over the ‘right’ way to make one is still waging on.

A post by Very British Problems on X (formerly known as Twitter) has started a fresh argument about the perfect brew – and people’s opinions are as strong as their teas.

Thousands of the account’s 3.9 million followers shared their views on a chart of 44 cups of tea of varying shades.

Each of the drinks showed a different milk-to-tea ratio, with A1 being the lightest – almost all milk – and F6 coming in darkest – black tea without a drop of dairy.

‘The correct choice is E3,’ read the tweet’s caption. ‘I trust there’ll be no further discussion on the matter.’

But of course, it was only the beginning.

Given 45% of people in the UK say that a proper cup of tea makes them proud to be British, it’s understandable we all have different definitions of what that looks like.

Just don’t get us started on whether it’s acceptable to put the milk in first, though, at least unless you want to start a scrap.
