People have been left ‘disgusted’ after a woman shared a cup of tea her boyfriend made her – and one user even branded it the ‘worst cup of tea I’ve ever seen’.
Sharing the brew anonymously, the woman wrote ‘m ourn the teabag that died for this brew my boyfriend made me’ as the caption to an image of the inspid beverage.
Served in a black mug, the contents of the cup looks more like a Cup a Soup than an English breakfast, it’s distinctly pale, and even has a bit of foam around the rim.
And internet users were astounded at just how bad the cup of tea was, with one user asking “is he ok? He appears to have given up on life.”
The image was posted in a group called Casual UK, and many Brits seemed deeply offended by the hue of the brew and commented on the post to vent their frustration.
One person wrote: “Did he make it from the cold tap? Did he reuse an old tea bag from the bin? I literally don’t understand how it’s possible to make tea that weak.”
While a second user agreed, adding: “My girlfriend’s mum makes tea to this specification. It hurts me to make it every time. I have actually given her cups of hot water and milk and she hasn’t noticed.”
But other Reddit users just couldn’t understand what they were seeing, as one wrote: “I never knew that a cup of tea could have anaemia.”
And a second added: “Did he make that tea with chicken stock?”
While a third wrote: “Nice. I too enjoy dirty dishwater in a mug.”
“Tip it in the sink and start again”, a third said. “That’s a write-off.”

“I thought tea made from the hot tap was reserved for our greatest enemies,” they wrote. “It’s about as passive-aggressive as running you a tepid bath and putting out a damp towel.
“When he makes the bed, does he tuck your side in? Is he putting the dishwasher on when you’re in the shower?!
“I suggest you start packing and look for a safe house ASAP.”
