Most Annoying Things that Can Happen After You've Made a Cup of Tea

kempokid
I'm once again going to try a list that doesn't involve talking about the best or worst things and instead do something random and unique. I hope this one ends up better than my last one, which was awful. In any case, I adore a good cup of tea, but also have had many things that have happened that are really annoying. This is a list containing some of these issues.

The Top Ten

1 You take a sip and then realize that you put in salt instead of sugar

If you've ever done this before, you know how bad it is. It starts off tasting normal, then it's as if you just drank straight from the ocean. - kempokid

It's even worse when you have made the cup of tea for someone else and they find out - styLIShT

Nah, that's at least funny. It's nasty either way, but watching someone else is absolutely hilarious - kempokid

2 You look away for a couple of seconds and then a fly lands in the cup and drowns/burns to death

You have 2 choices in this situation, reach in and burn your hand trying to remove it (you can use something to fish it out, but who cares? ) before drinking it, knowing that a fly landed in it, or you could pour it out, meaning you have to deal without your hot beverage, or make another one. - kempokid

3 You leave to go do something, forget about the cup, and then come back to find it cold

This is the most common thing to happen to me, and it really annoys me. - kempokid

I don't care about this, I'll drink both hot and cold stuff - styLIShT

Usually I don't mind, but when you put milk in it, it separates slightly and tastes a bit weird. - kempokid

4 As you carry it, you spill a bit on your hand, resulting in dropping the entire cup, usually on yourself

This one's just annoying because you burned your hand, have to put whatever you were wearing in the wash, have to make yourself a new cup of tea, and possibly broke a mug. - kempokid

5 You use full cream milk, leave the cup for a couple of minutes, then come back to see the layer of cream/fat separating on the top of the cup

This makes the next couple of sips extremely gross feeling, as it feels almost slimy. The rest of the cup will be considerably less pleasant due to the lack of creaminess though. - kempokid

6 You make a cup of tea, stupidly not realising that it's over 30 degrees C outside, and then feel like you're burning alive with every sip

In Australia, the temperature can get really stupid, yet I'm still the kind of stubborn idiot to make myself a morning cup of tea. - kempokid

7 People who see you think you're a caffeine addict

At a school camp, we had access to boiling water and tea, so for my breakfast and lunch, I'd make myself a cup of tea, and my friends thought that I was a caffeine addict. In reality, caffeine barely affects me, I drink so much tea because I love the taste - kempokid

8 You take a big sip when it's too hot

And then you just stay there flapping your tongue like a madman - styLIShT

I've scalded the roof of my mouth too many times thanks to my impatience - kempokid

Yes! I'll never learn. - Britgirl

I swear that it's literally impossible to learn from that particular mistake - kempokid

9 Your sibling/parent drinks your tea while you aren't paying attention

My mum drank my tea once after forgetting she'd already drank hers. - Britgirl

JUST MAKE YOUR OWN TEA! - kempokid

10 You forget that you're out of milk/sugar

Sure, black tea isn't bad, but I prefer tea with milk and sugar. On top of this, I make my brew my tea in proportion with how much sugar and milk I want to use, leaving it to brew longer than it should be leaves it tasting unnecessarily bitter and unpleasant - kempokid
