There is something so quintessentially British about tea. And everyone has an opinion on how to make the perfect pot of tea. After all we Brits do love a cuppa. Between us we reportedly drink 165 million cups of tea a day! Tea is loved the world over, and after water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. So I am really pleased to be able to offer you the chance to win this gorgeous Tea Lovers Gift Giveaway, worth over £80.00 in collaboration with Adagio Teas.
Adagio Teas was founded in 1999 and is a small family owned company. Their mission is to bring the best quality teas from the worlds farms straight to your cup.
They sent me some to sample and I absolutely loved the green teas, especially the Citrus green with its delicate hint of lemon and orange. Their Jasmine teas are gorgeous too. And there is something so satisfying about making a pot of tea with real tea leaves, don’t you think?
Adagio teas offer a huge selection from fruit teas, to herbal teas to the more traditional variety. They have lots of different teas to try and some lovely sample collections so you can experiment and find a new favourite.
So how do you make the perfect pot of tea?
- Firstly fill your kettle and bring it to the boil
- Warm your teapot with some of the boiled water and swish it round the pot. Then discard.
- Pop one teaspoon of tea leaves per person and add one for the pot
- Then fill the teapot with the boiled water
- Leave for a minute or two before pouring through a tea strainer
Whether you add the milk first or after the tea is up for debate. I have mine without so I don’t have to think about it. Originally milk was added first to prevent the delicate teacups from cracking. But we don’t have to worry about that these days so I guess it’s up to personal preference.
