MakeTheTea.com helps to sidestep the daily strife of deciding whose turn it is to make the next brew. Essentially a social network for hot-beverage lovers, you are invited to create a profile, enter your drink preferences, set up a group and then invite friends, colleagues and family members to join. Whenever somebody fancies a cuppa, the website will randomly select a brewer. You’re not limited to tea – coffee and other drinks are also available – and there are interesting facts to read, like the nation’s favourite tea-break time being 11am. It’s a fun idea, but try not to milk it.
