Brew the perfect cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag 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 tea’s clean, brisk taste proved a real hit at the London tea auctions and the British have never looked back…

I have tried so many different strong teas as I do like a strong tea but not 'too strong' and this tea is just perfect. It makes a lovely cup of tea which I enjoy with breakfast with my hubby through the day. Thanks Whittard for doing such a wonderful Tea!
