    Please answer honestly!

    I have a theory

    1 are you from north or south of the Equator or spent your childhood there(N, S)
    2 do you stir your tea clockwise or anti clockwise (C, AC)


    I look forward to your answers:wacko:

    Clockwise. But it s more of a whisking action really.

    N C (and I'm right handed)

    Edit: well, I was sure I stirred clockwise, until this morning I made my one cup of coffee of the day and found myself stirring anti-clockwise.

    "Well, bugger oi be" thought I :blush:

    You should always stir tea anti-clockwise.

    He's right. Well, in the Northern hemisphere anyway.

    Its all to do with centrifugal seperation of the volatile aromatics and essential oils in the tea.

    If you live South of the equator, you should obviously stir clockwise.
