Eva Cekanova, who is from Slovakia, told the court in her home country tea is made in a big glass jug.

She said she boiled a kettle in her Dublin apartment and let it sit for a few minutes before pouring the hot water, which was at a temperature of between 80 to 90 degrees, on top of a watermelon teabag in the tall jug.

"I was just making tea like I did a million times before and it never happened," she said.

"The water was not boiling."

The tall jug shattered into pieces and she fell back so that the liquid hit her thigh, knee and legs and she suffered burns which left her with scarring, she said.

It contends Ms Cekanova failed to heed a warning sticker on the jug, on which Dunnes says specifically not to use hot water.

Cross-examined by Dunnes counsel Marcus Daly SC, Ms Cekanova said she had "never before in my life" heard of putting something metal like a spoon in to glass when pouring hot liquid in to it.

Counsel put it to her the accident was her own fault.
