USEFUL TIPS FOR THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
1.Use a good quality loose leaf or bagged tea.
2.This must be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.
3.Always use freshly drawn boiling water.
4.In order to draw the best flavour out of the tea the water must contain oxygen, this is reduced if the water is boiled more than once.
5.Measure the tea carefully.
6.Use 1 tea bag or 1 rounded teaspoon of loose tea for each cup to be served.
7.Allow the tea to brew for the recommended time before pouring
Brewing tea from a bag in a mug? Milk in last is best.
