This is a question "You're doing it wrong"

Chthonic confesses: "Only last year did I discover why the lids of things in tubes have a recessed pointy bit built into them." Tell us about the facepalm moment when you realised you were doing something wrong.

really the tea should be made in a pot
and the milk put in the cup and then the correctly brewed tea added.

I heard a different version of the 'tea first' v. 'milk first' debate.
The upper classes added milk to the cup first because their tea services were made of fine porcelain, and pouring a hot liquid directly into them could have cracked them. The lower classes, on the other hand, drank tea from sturdy mugs, so you could pour the tea in first without worrying.

I thought it was the other way around?
The rich had expensive cups that didn't break when you poured the hot tea in (Proper porcelain from China), but the poor only had cheap earthenware that cracked unless you put the milk in first?
