A cup of earl grey tea, one sugar and a dash of milk. That’s how I like to start my day.
After much research and observation I have discovered the recipe for the best cup of earl grey tea.
Here follows a tea for two recipe
You will need:
1 tea pot
1 Boil the kettle
2 warm your pot by pouring boiling water directly into your teapot.
3 swill and pour water straight down the plug hole.
4 re-boil kettle and add 1 bag of your favourite tea to your warmed pot.
5 Stand by your kettle, the moment the kettle boils (no sooner, no later) pour boiled water immediately into warmed pot, over your chosen tea bag.
6 brew for two to three minutes, longer if you like your tea strong.
7 serve your prepared teapot on a tray with tea cups, saucers, tea spoons, a jug of milk and a sugar pot.
8 Morning tea is best with crumpets, afternoon tea is best served with a good biscuit. I highly recommend this shortbread. It’s the best I’ve ever tasted. Fact.
You are now ready to set the world to rights with a good friend.
How do you take your tea?
