Milk IN the teapot: Innovation or abomination?

tea first.

You get the best cup of tea when you pour on boiling water or water with a temperature of at least 96 degrees C. Adding milk first will not allow the tea to come in contact with boiling water so you'll get a crappy cuppa.

On the other hand coffee should be made with water at less than 96 degrees which is why you get a good cup off coffee if you add the milk first.
