How to make a proper brew – Yorkshire Tea

Get a proper pot on

1Run the tap a little so the water is nicely aerated. Use water that has boiled just once – any more than that and the level of oxygen in the water is reduced and your tea can taste a bit ‘flat’.

Warm the teapot first by swilling boiling water around inside it, then warm the cups with the water from the teapot.

3

For a four-cup pot, use two teabags. For loose tea, use one teaspoon per person and one for the pot. (Our tea buyers like it really strong and use three or four.)

4

Add freshly boiled water to the pot, stir and leave to brew for 4-5 minutes depending on how strong you like it.

If you take milk, we recommend a splash of whole or semi-skimmed milk, with sugar if you take it.

A proper cuppa

4

Pour freshly boiled water directly onto your teabag in a mug. This way the tea infuses better than adding the teabag to water.

Leave to brew for 4-5 minutes according to taste.

Remove the teabag with a spoon giving it just one gentle squeeze.
