Only make one cup at a time. Sharing with a friend adds emotional connection, and brewing in a tea pot is far too elegant and traditional.
Store your tea someplace hard to get to, preferably in a jumble of half-empty or unused containers. In addition to encouraging proper aging, this adds aggravation to the beginning of the procedure and sets the tone for an underwhelming anticlimax.
Drink your tea from a large, heavy mug, to emphasize its bulk and minimize attention to subtleties of flavor. Or, for the expert, a styrofoam cup provides a chemical flavor and a tooth-squeaking distraction.
Use a microwave oven to mechanize the process. And of course, reheating tea is the ultimate expression of disregard for quality.
(Though hanging up a tea bag to dry with a clothespin prior to reuse is even more impressive.)
Drink your tea in a noisy, chaotic environment, e.g., while watching the Superbowl in a home-team sports bar. If this is difficult, at least find something else to do to ensure you don’t fully experience or even notice the taste.
Be sure not to accompany your tea with something that will complement it, such as a light cookie or scone. Either eat something weird or overpowering with it, like anchovy pizza or fruit roll-ups, or nothing at all. A cigarette is perfect.
In restaurants, a trough experience is easy to provide. Heat some water in an unwashed coffee carafe, ensuring it never quite boils. Pour into a tiny, thin-walled metal pot. Provide this to the patron some minutes later with a chilled cup only slightly smaller than the pot and a tea bag that has been stored next to instant coffee since the previous millennium. Not only does this provide a suitably revolting tea experience, it helps solidify tea’s reputation as “watery coffee-lite.”
Remember: beverage snobbery and unflinching obstinacy in all matters of personal habit are what made this country great,1 and are therefore your birthright and rightful legacy. Stick to your guns; with only a little care - in fact, with no care at all - you should easily be able to dismiss tea as beneath your notice.
1Whatever country you happen to be in.
