So, to recap: Sarcastic kid pulls funny joke by taking mother's instructions literally, putting tea, TARDIS, British children`s novel, and "welcome" signs in bathroom as though to welcome the queen.
I-A-B response: Criticize the type of tea he had on hand.

oh heavens- right, all queue for a kinder egg and a Tea bag. PG or Tetley- yorkshire Tea for those in hard water areas. One teabag ( two of those silly string things) boiling water- stir leave for a minute or so, squeeze out bag, add milk. Should be the same sort of colour as coffee- just a more orange shade. I agree about instant coffee- it is a crime against coffee. Proper beer is not actually warm- but not freezing- it contains a live yeast which is what gives it the bubbles. Most cellars are around 12 degrees . You can freeze that sterilised rubbish, put ice in it or whatever- not much will improve it. the only flavoured tea should be berganot in Earl Grey.

For those who doubt it: there is a big difference between good tea and supermarket box o' teabags tea.
I`d say the difference is on a par with the difference between proper coffee from freshly ground good quality beans and instant coffee. Some of the better brands are OK, but they`re not the same as the proper stuff and the mass market brands are usually more about advertising than product.
