I squeeze my teabags all the time. If you don't they make a mess when you fish them out of the mug. I even have a little gadget to do it with.
Never come across this instruction.
Excuse me while I go and put the kettle on.
EDIT: I wonder if they think we're all idiots and will try to squeeze the boiling hot teabag then sue them when we scald ourselves?
