That's the hot topic du jour for tea lovers across the Twittersphere right now.

This latest food debate has seen thousands across social media sharing strong opinions on the best way to prepare a simple cup of tea — and the main Twitter thread is pretty comedic.

It all started over the weekend when London-based writer Joel Golby shared the following musing on Twitter: "simply [sic] can’t trust people who don’t leave the tea bag to steep in the cup for a bit. you think you can get enough depth of flavour just by squashing it a lot with the back of a teaspoon? the arrogance. the ego. leave the room and walk away from it."

The Internet Can’t Decide What This Frozen Treat Is Called

The Internet Can’t Decide What This Frozen Treat Is Called With summer weather just around the corner, shoppers across the country are buying these treats in bulk—but no one can decide what they’re called. A viral post about the frozen pops sparked a debate on the Internet this week.

All rights reserved. 'Laurel' or 'yanny'?: Debate divides the internet . In a four-second audio clip, a robotic voice says a single word that has divided the online community, as some people say We'll make it through this as a country as well, guys but this one simple clip with one word has divided the country. So something wrong with me? Well, that's another issue. So what's the science behind this?

An online debate on this matter, however, suggests people have strong reactions. Mashable reports it all started with a Twitter user asking, “Do y’all wet the Responses to the question were decidedly divided . Some opted for wetting their toothbrush first, while others explained they wet their toothbrush

For those who aren't familiar with the art of tea assembly, "steeping" basically means soaking your tea bag or tea leaves in hot water before removing them and drinking the infused liquid. The idea is to let your plain, boring water soak in the aromatic flavor of the tea leaves and spices.

After Golby shared his post, fired up tea lovers in the U.K. (and eventually worldwide) took to Twitter to weigh in. As it turns out, many people agreed with him and were equally as loyal to a thorough steeping process.

Many tweeters even shared their own personal recipe for a perfectly steeped cup of tea.

Lots of people couldn't believe that others actually try to crush their tea bags to speed things up.

But some, however, bravely admitted they might squish a bag to get more flavor out faster.

Others offered up clever solutions for those who are too impatient to let their tea fully seep.

The debate really came to a boil when people started asking whether one should leave the tea bag in while you drink your tea.

Many pointed out that leaving the tea bag in is a typically American habit. How naughty.

Yet some insisted it adds great flavor.

Many users did note that if you like tea served a certain way, it's OK to prepare it to your own unique specifications ... in the privacy of your own home.

For a lesson in proper tea etiquette, TODAY Food turned to one British brand and one American tea brand to see what they recommend.

First up? Yorkshire Tea, a popular brand found in most U.K. grocery stores. The folks at Yorkshire recommend popping a tea bag into an empty mug first, then pouring hot water over it and briefly stirring. "Tea needs time to unlock all its flavour [sic], so give it 4-5 minutes to do its thing. This is a perfect time to munch a sneaky biscuit or daydream about holidays," reads Yorkshire's website.

Addicted to the internet? Behavioral therapy could work, researchers find

Addicted to the internet? Behavioral therapy could work, researchers find For people with internet addiction, there's a type of short-term therapy that can be an effective treatment, according to a small study published on Wednesday in medical journal JAMA Psychiatry. Researchers found that 69.4% of men with internet addiction entered remission if they received short-term cognitive behavioral therapy, compared to 23.9% of men who entered remission while being on a waitlist to receive therapy. People in remission were 10 times more likely to be part of the short-term cognitive behavioral therapy group than the waitlist control group.

Much like the debate over the color of the dress, the debate quickly went viral on social media, with celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Chrissie Teigen giving their opinions on what they heard. New age artist Yanni even weighed in and, of course, he only hears Yanni

Before taking your tea bag out, the brand does recommend gently squishing it "against the side of the mug. Just the once, mind — if you really mash it, it'll taste bitter." Carry on, old chap.

But things might be a little different across the pond, where people tend to drink a wider variety of teas.

Harney & Sons, an American tea brand, acknowledges that a one-size-fits-all method does not work when it comes to tea. White and green teas may become bitter if oversteeped, so three minutes will usually suffice. Most herbal teas and black teas, however, can be steeped for up to five minutes, or even longer depending on the type.

So, what's the best way to steep a tea bag? It depends on the type but no tea maker we found suggested the smashing and dashing method all by itself. To make the most out of one's tea, it's advisable to steep it for at least a minute or two — just don't forget about it altogether.
