Nicey replies: To be fair Victoria it's the numerous breaks in between actually drinking when you were merely holding the mug when you would be most likely to look at the side of the mug. Still molluscs have eyes in some unusual places so may be we could worry about them drinking tea from left handed mugs. Hmm. Right that's enough worrying about that.

Nicey replies: Mary,

No you are going to have to have it out with him. This is such a Friday type of thing to happen. Lulled by the inevitable slow down at the end of the week, his energy levels to find a clean mug have dipped and he has just grabbed the nearest one to hand. Obviously he quite likes it as its clean, full of tea and in his hand.

You are already harboring a good bit of resentment already although you appear to be quite polite about the whole thing. If you allow the situation to continue then its just going to gnaw away at you. Eventually you may snap in a fit of mug rage, which is best avoided. I would tell him nicely that he has been fortunate enough to try your mug, but now he needs to sort out his life and get his own mug, and that if you ever catch him using yours again then he'll need to bring you biscuits and make the tea for you for the next year.

Nicey replies: Yes I'm sure you have raised an important point, I expect. Of course all NCOTAASD mugs look terrific from any angle.

Mark George
Nicey replies: As you leave your bag in for two minutes I certainly wouldn't try to make another cup with it. However we only give our bags a matter of 10-15 seconds whilst giving it a bit of a stir, and it works fine for us and a great many others for that matter. As we explained in the book when talking about leaf size in modern tea bags after two minutes a average tea bag in a mug will have begun to stew so unless it is removed exceedingly carefully will release the stewed tea from within, hence the perceived baggy flavour. This is due to the heavier molecular weight tannins which account for this flavour being able to move through the now saturated and hence widely spaced fibers of the cell walls. If the bag were to do this in the context of a teapot then it wouldn't be so much of an issue as it would no doubt be working with more than one mug of boiling water.

If somebody were to make a cup of of tea with one of your used two minute bags it would taste awfully stewed, and I certainly wouldn't fancy that.

I hope we have arrived at some sort of understanding.
