To squeeze or not to squeeze, that is the question.
Neither, I’m afraid the Tea Police will show up at the door.
I dunk if I’m impatient and only squeeze if frustrated. Usually squeeze over the sink though, not back into my cup.
I do that spoon thing – where you dunk dunk dunk the teabag into your teacup, spoon the teabag with your pretty teaspoon, wrap the string around the teabag & spoon about 2-3 times, squeeze with light pressure, then drain the excess tea off the spoon into the teacup, leave the spoon w/ teabag and string onto the teacup saucer. But, now that I think upon it, I haven’t had bagged tea in a long time — ever since I started with the loose tea ritual.
