Brew The Perfect
Cup of Tea

  1. Heating the Water Heating the Water Always use freshly drawn water. Water which has previously been boiled will have become de-oxygenated and will not produce a good liquor. If possible, the water should be filtered to remove the chlorine and other additives that affect the taste. Heat water to the temperature recommended for your tea using an electric hot water heater or a stovetop kettle.
  2. Selecting the Tea Selecting the Tea Choose your favourite blend from our large selection of teas. Black teas are the most frequently used as part of the afternoon tea custom. However, if you’re looking for a lighter tea, select from one of our many delicious green teas or herbal infusions. Use 1 teaspoon of tea per person, plus one for the pot.
  3. Brewing Tips Brewing Tips Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately onto the tea leaves to allow the best brew. Check the pack or the table below for brewing times as this varies between blends. When brewing, cover the teapot with a tea cosy to keep the heat in. When your tea is done steeping, immediately remove the loose tea from the strainer or the teabag and lightly stir.
