It seems like everyone has an opinion on what makes a cracking cup of tea. Some hardcore tea lovers enjoy it black, others with copious amounts of milk and sugar and then there are those who defy all sorts of logic and tea etiquette who insist on adding the milk first, before the tea bag.
In fact, I’d go as far to say that making the perfect cup of tea is a bit of a poisoned chalice, as you’re incredibly unlikely to find someone who can make your brew half as good as you can.
Off all the factors that go into expert tea making, you’d be forgiven that your general levels of attractiveness would have absolutely nothing to do with it. Well you’d be wrong, very wrong.
A recent study, conducted by that well known and respected Scientific database, popular dating website Plenty of Fish, has shown that one fifth out of the 2,5000 people who took their survey class good tea making capabilities as something of a major factor when in a relationship.
An incredible 37% of the people surveyed showed that if you are one of those people who enjoys a weak tea, then that admission could see you miss out on ‘the one’. The study also showed that 17% of us are unlikely to recover if you make a tea-related blinded such as over-brewing your tea and 13% of us put off by people who enjoy a particularly sugary tea.
There was also a warning to all you non-dairy lovers out there, with the survey showing that 10% of people view that as a sin when it comes to tea making. To be honest, I actually agree with this one, if you’re putting soy milk in your tea then you need to have a word with yourself.
The study also showed that a surprisingly low amount of us, 9%, are OK with people adding milk before the water. Again, if this is how you make a tea, then please take note.
So there you have it, if you want to find the one, you better up your tea-making game!
