An American woman has fired up users of social media platform TikTok after she shared a video of herself making what she describes as ‘British Tea’.

In the video, the woman narrates as her daughter demonstrates how Americans make tea which includes steps such as boiling water in the microwave and adding a LOT of sugar.
