Fantastic Five on Friday, the redux

I used to run a series on the blog called “Fantastic Five on Friday” despite there being plenty of fantastic things in the world I really ran out of worthwhile list themes to use, well they did have to be fantastic. So the other side of the proverbial coin is to list things that aren’t fantastic, and a new list series is born, I give you the “Not Fantastic Five on Friday”

Due to the brian wave of this series hitting me while I was having a shitty cup of tea, the title of the first ever list is “Crappy cups of tea “.

Crappy cups of tea

  • UHT milk. Is there a surer way to ruin a good cup of tea than adding this filth? I understand the need for UHT milk in the world, just not in my cup of tea, thanks.
  • Split tea bag. If you notice you’re fine, failure to spot the leaves floating around in there when you take a slurp and I hope your on your own and can spit it back out.
  • Too much sugar. I can handle a bit of sugar in tea, if I’m honest I think that a quarter teaspoon is the perfect amount. Have you ever been made a cuppa by a do gooder but they put a dessert spoon sized mound of sugar in there? Its like drinking bad tasting syrup.
  • Too weak. Perhaps it should be a number one, but if the tea bag is whipped out too soon then its more hot water and milk than anything else.
  • You thought this was going to be “too strong” huh. Well it’s not, I’ve never had a cup of tea I class as too strong so I can’t add it to the list. Instead “cold’ hits the spot. Or it doesn’t, and that’s the point. Forget yourself in a movie, book or even a blog and let the temperature drop too far and cup of steaming glory becomes something unpalatable (unless you add ice and take out the milk somehow).
Have a good weekend!
