Question: Teabag Brewing at a Restaurant

Often when I order "hot tea" in a restaurant, I am disappointed 
in the quality and service.
My disappointment is usually due to: 
1. the incorrect temperature of the water (not hot enough)
2. the quality of the tea (bag/dust and fannings)
The "hot tea" above was served at our family favorite
breakfast cafe in Lexington, Wild Eggs.
The tea is by Novus® "Handcrafted by the Bigelow family" 
and is an individually wrapped "full leaf" tea in a sachet. 

Everyone who regularly reads my blog will not be surprised to 
see my tea of choice on this occasion was a traditional English Breakfast,
 a Ceylon (black) tea from Sri Lanka. 

?????
So, now I have a question, perhaps a survey of sorts: 
When you order "hot tea" in a restaurant and a small 
pot of hot water and an empty cup or mug are brought to your table --  
do you put the tea bag or sachet in the pot first or the cup first to brew your tea? 

>And, yes, I know it it not always brought to the table this way. 
Sometimes it is a mug or cup of hot-ish water with a tea bag beside it.<

So let's have a little discussion on restaurant service of "hot tea."
