Brew a Perfect Cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
The Bergamot is too strong and the tea very bitter. Nothing like a traditional afternoon. Very disappointed and expensive.
Picked some of this up out of curiosity (I love jasmine green tea, so the idea of including that in a black tea blend intregued me) at the end of a brief but busy afternoon in town. Got home and we brewed up a pot... no sugar or milk required (and I'm usually 2 sugars and enough milk to make the tea opaque...). Very uplifting, I think I have a new firm favorite!
I love Morrocan mint tea (other brand) and fruit tea (also Whittard's, but not sure which one), but I never love black tea until I tried Whittard's Afternoon blend last year. My cousin bought a few tiny tins and gave one to all our family members. I received Breakfast tea. My aunt receive the Afternoon blend. One day I went to visit her, and she made me this tea. I declined at first but she was raving about the deliciousness of the tea, so I got curious and tried a sip. It was smooth, it was refreshing, it was decadent, it was tantalizing! It was the perfect tea! I finished a cup and asked for second.
Now, if only Whittard's of Chelsea is available in Malaysia....
Strolling by mere chance into one of the stores during a trip to England, I tried to give it a try. I never regretted it. A lovely blend especially in winter with some gingerbread. Tastes great just by itself, too. A tea that keeps you happy.
