How much sugar & milk should be added? for the perfect cup?
Do not add too much milk!!! Sugar is to your own taste but the amount of milk is critical
To much is the word...
You have to squeeze the bag!
I told my girlfriend the same thing last night.

Don't squeeze the bag! That's not real tea. You think that people could squeeze the leaves before they had bags? no way. It's not done right unless you do it as if the bag's not there. Only use the bag to get the leaves in and out of the water.
I tired squeezed and Non squeezed. I prefer Squeezed, gives a stronger taste...

See that's the thing:
Squeezing the bag just makes it more bitter... You want a good strong tea, just let it steep a little longer, and stir the bag around a little bit.
Et Tu, BJ?
I believe the proper way to make tea is to put 2 bags in a porcelain teapot and pour in enough water for 3 cups. (not mugs) It's a good idea to swill some hot water around in the pot beforehand and then empty that out, just to warm the pot up a bit. Leave the bags to draw for a few minutes and pour the tea into the cup. That way there is no need to squeeze bags.
bitter? maybe in your brand of tea I have now tried a nice group of about 30 tea's thanks to a new online company... While I am not a professional Tea drinker I found I get a better / stronger taste with a small squeeze.
<-- no squeeze!
.... the squeezing of the bag, some Teaophiles say no, some say yes, its been the cause of many a brawl.
