British Standard Tea

Be warned, your liberty may be in danger.
BS 6008: Method for Preparation of a Liquor of Tea
BS 6325: Glossary of Terms Relating to Black Tea
BS 5987: Methods for Sampling Tea

I understand these methods will be becoming law in the EU (using ISO 3103 which adopts BS 6008). If you fail to make tea as specified in the standard, the Tea Police will be banging you up in Broadmoor under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 without trial for endangering the British Way of Life.

Immigrants will be taught this tea making standard as part of their induction. No British residency or work permit will be permitted until they can make great tea, fully conforming to the law. Failure to master this will result in deportation.

So just think carefully before making your next cuppa. ;)

Also, be careful about your toilet habits:
ISO 8099:2000 Small craft - Toilet waste retention systems
