I just made a cup of tea but since I was out of teabags I made it with some fresh loose one I got as a gift quite recently (including some proper tea mugs). Luckily, I had a tea strainer lying around but it feels like it came out too thin. In fact, I felt like I didn't quite do it right. I'm used to teabags and then always add some sugar and milk. Usually, I have my tea late at night as some sort of a non-alcoholic nightcap but it's been so cold and freezing in Western Europe lately, I've been having tea any time of day. For those tea drinkers among us, how do you prefer making/preparing your tea?
