The chemists purred - and then last night the physicists waded in and said all that matters is the water temperature, not the milk. "Trust chemists to make things complicated," Institute of Physics chief executive Dr Julia King said. "When it boils down to it, the physics is more important than the chemical side of things.
It belongs to an article where the Royal Chemist Society disclose the finding that, against what traditionally has been said, in order to get the perfect cup of tea, milk has to be poured first, followed by hot water. Could "purr" mean that the chemists were satisfied with their finding?
