How we make the perfect cuppa?

How to make the perfect cuppa, you may ask?

Whether you’re tea obsessed (like us) or the occasional drinker, everybody has - at least once - received a watery cup of tea. In my case, my beloved granny has on one or two occasions been the culprit here. Let’s try and avoid this from ever happening again, shall we, Sheils?

 We’re not too fussy on whether the milk is poured before the tea or the tea before the milk, but we can’t stress the importance of brewing time enough!

 Follow these simple steps to make a cup of one of our luscious brews:

  1. Boil the kettle – 100°C is the optimum temperature for all of our brews.
  2. Place your teabag into your cup. If you’d prefer to use a pot, place one teabag per person in the pot and add an extra one just for the pot.
  3. Once the water is boiled pour into your cup or pot and allow to brew for anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes, depending on how strong you prefer your brew. Personally, we recommend leaving the teabag in for all of the infusions, whereas for the English Breaky or Masala Chai, we allow the teabag to steep for 5 minutes.
  4. Once brewed, add a dash of milk, where English Breaky or Masala Chai is concerned. Our infusions don’t require any milk.
  5. Close your eyes, take a sip and proclaim, “Now that’s a good cuppa tea!”


P.S what is a good cup of tea without a delightful biscuit? We’ve created a Biscuit and Brew guideline for you so peruse when you next pop the kettle on, darling.
