George Orwell’s 11 golden rules for making the perfect cup of tea

In 1946 English novelist and journalist George Orwell published an essay in the Evening Standard entitled “A Nice Cup of Tea.” For everyone who’s ever believed there’s an art to making a good cup of tea, you’ll definitely enjoy Mr. Orwell’s 11 “golden” rules for the perfect cup.

Disregarding the points that aren’t so relevant now, I agree with Orwell on the last two rules (albeit I was disappointed he didn’t say ‘eleventhly’ to introduce his last point).
