Milk (or soy milk)
150 ml

2. Tie up both ends of the tea bags with the string you removed in Step 1. Tie as near to the end as possible.
3. Put the two tea bags in a mug, add hot water and allow the tea to steep. Add the milk and microwave for 2 minutes at 500 W.
4. When done, squeeze and remove the tea bags.
5. Add sugar if you like, and enjoy tea time!

Story Behind this Recipe

I didn't like the idea of putting the tea bags in the microwave with the staples attached, so I decided to do it this way.
I also find wrapping the teabags up with their string somewhat relaxing.
