A British lad was hit by a horrifying reality when his girlfriend made him tea the "American way".

There is often a huge debate among the Brits when it comes to brewing a perfect cup of tea – from whether milk or the tea bag should be put in first, to the ratio of tea to milk.

When American Dancing on Ice champion Alex Murphy made her boyfriend a cup of "English tea", it's fair to say it led to a strong reaction.

In a TikTok video, Alex puts a tea bag into a mug and fills it with cold tap water, then pours in a decent amount of milk and adds a spoonful of sugar.

She takes this cup of cloudy-looking, tea-soaking water to the microwave and heats it up for 30 seconds.

When it's done, she says: "A cup of British tea."

Alex removes the tea bag and gives the drink a quick stir to mix it all together.

When Alex's boyfriend takes a first sip, he raises his eyebrow and asks: "What is that?"

He gives it another go, but can't help to deliver a brutal verdict, saying: "That is disgusting, sorry I don't mean to be rude.

"I feel like I am being really rude but that is not a cup of tea."

When Alex reveals that she put the tea in the microwave, the lad is stunned.

"Oh f***, you having a laugh?" he tells her, then drops the tea to the floor, breaking the mug into pieces.

Viewers shared their thoughts on the comments, with one saying her boyfriend's response was "appropriate".

One said: "When she used tap water, I screamed!"

"Throwing the cap was justified, if you say otherwise clearly you're not British," a second wrote.

Alex didn't realise her tea made such a big fuss and said: "I didn't realise the world cared this much about tea. It is how we do it in America!"
