How to make the perfect cup of tea. As an Englishman through and through... of course, I enjoy a good cup of tea. So i thought it would be only right to educate those who are less informed about the ins and outs of creating a tipple fit for the Queen. FACT: no country will make you a better cup of tea than Great Britain, God save the Queen.
I prefer PG Tips or Tetleys side note: this is for when you use a tea bag not free leaves. For the Americans among us, these are 'English Breakfast' teas. But don't think you can just pop in any old English Breakfast Tea bag and think that will suffice... it most certainly will not! Brew the bag in boiled water for a good few minutes and squeeze it against the side of the mug with a teaspoon to get all of the british goodness out. Then add the milk until it's the colour of the pic above. Stir, and then add a teaspoon of sugar (or honey!) and stir again. I usually let it sit for a minute or so to let it cool a little. and voila! you have yourself a perfect British cup of Tea.
My dip of choice is the Hobnob... you can't beat a good Hobnob in tea... Enjoy my friends, enjoy ;)
