Get a proper pot on
Warm the teapot first by swilling boiling water around inside it, then warm the cups with the water from the teapot.
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.)
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
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.
