How to make a proper brew
Rule n.1 - Treat your water kindly
Run the tap a little so the water’s nicely aerated, and only boil it once to keep the oxygen level up. Oxygen in water helps flavour!
Rule n.2 - Add tea and wate
Pop a tea bag into your mug, pour over the hot water and stir briefly.
Rule n.3 - Wait patiently
Tea needs time to unlock all its flavour, so give it 4-5 minutes to do its thing. This is a perfect time to munch a sneaky biscuit or daydream about holidays.
Rule n.4 - Give it a squeeze
Before removing the tea bag, gently squidge it against the side of the mug. Just the once, mind – if you really mash it, it’ll taste bitter.
Rule n.5 - Customise your brew
We like a splash of semi-skimmed or whole milk, but your brew is unique to you – so add milk, sugar, honey, lemon or nothing at all. Most importantly, enjoy!
