An American woman has faced the wrath of the British public this week after she filmed a tutorial demonstrating how to correctly make a cup of British tea.
Spoiler: She made it horrifyingly wrong.
Keep scrolling for the full story, and to watch her heinous tutorial for yourself...
The United Kingdom is a tremendously proud nation.If you've ever met someone from the land of pints and fish and chips, you'll know that they hold their culture with an unwavering amount of pride.
Whether it be their long and gruesome history of colonization...Or their slightly eyebrow-raising love for the royal family, the Brits will very seldom let anyone criticize or question their ways.
Heck, they even embrace their lousy weather.I've never seen anyone enjoy a good bit of rain and hail like the British.
But, above all of that, the Brits really take pride in their food and drink.Rich and savory pies, roast dinners, endless pints of beer and ale... Yeah, British cuisine really is something else.
And, of course, we can't forget the humble cup of tea.Perhaps the pinnacle of all the British food and drink, a cup of tea has become somewhat of a symbol of true "Britishness" over the years.
The nation is known for their perfectly brewed cups of tea...With the added sugar and milk making the drink unique to their culture.
So, of course, you'd be a total lunatic to try and recreate this concoction for yourself, right?Well, one confident American didn't get this memo and, as a result, she has been spectacularly roasted by the British public.
YouTuber, Michelle, is an American living in the United Kingdom.
She has created an array of British themed videos...Americans trying crumpets, Americans tasting British soda, Americans graduating in the U.K... You get the gist.
But Michelle's latest video has fuelled an awful lot of controversy.
I know, it's a disaster waiting to happen, isn't it?
But this isn't the first time Michelle has stirred up the controversy.Earlier this year, the enthusiastic tea-maker shared a video that showed the world how we Americans make iced tea.
Disclaimer: It isn't at all how we make iced tea.Michelle and her daughter, Mykela, filmed themselves making a heinous iced tea batch with several Lipton tea bags, a mixture of boiled water and cold water, and a lot of sugar.
That amount of sugar shouldn't be legal.They then concluded the video by setting their diabetes-inducing iced tea in the fridge.
At the time, the video instantly went viral...And people recoiled in horror at the sugary concoction.
But now, the mother-daughter duo are back...And they have caused even more controversy than before.
This time, Michelle and Mykela set their horizons on the traditional cup of tea...Or "hot tea", as they labeled it. Michelle claims that she got "a lot of questions after the last video", and people apparently wanted to see her make "British tea".
So, of course, she gave her audience what they wanted.The video starts with Mykela filling a mug with cold water straight from the tap... Which is already incredibly problematic in itself.
After microwaving the cold water for one minute...Mykela proceeds to add a nauseating amount of milk to the now luke-warm water.
The teabag is then added...But it is then followed by a truckload of sugar and a vigorous stir. Though, judging by Michelle's last video, we're really not surprised by this part.
And that, folks, is how you make "hot tea."Well, according to Michelle it is. Since being posted onto both TikTok and Twitter, the video come under the fire of enraged and offended Brits.
They are not impressed.
