An American mum has outraged Brits by sharing her version of a ‘British tea’.
Michelle, who is originally from the US but is now living in the UK, took to TikTok to show off how she makes a ‘hot tea’.
In the clip, she explained: “So I got a lot of questions after my last video, and everyone wanted to see me make hot tea or British tea.”
So in the video, Michelle revealed to viewers that she makes a cup of tea by using a microwave.
For around a minute, she heats the mug of water. Then she pours a large amount of milk, making up around a third of the cup.
Next, the mum drops a teabag and inside and before she even lets it brew properly, she adds a ridiculous amount of sugar in the presumably lukewarm mixture.

After watching the video, many TikTokers said Michelle’s version of a British cup of tea should be made ‘illegal’.
One viewer raged: “This is a crime.”
Another added: “A little bit of me died inside when I watched this.”
“That’s just watery milk,” another person pointed out.
A fourth stated: “For every American watching this, this is NOT how tea is made at all.”
