Black Tea, English Breakfast
Ingredients: Black tea
Product Information: A perfect black breakfast tea. Good body but not overpowering. Coppery bright and excellent flavor. English Breakfast is a great traditional favorite.
Brewing Method: As with all top-quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot. Pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn (previously boiled water has lost most if its oxygen and therefore tends to be flat tasting), steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir (virtually all the leaves will sink), pour into your cup, add milk (do not use cream) and sugar to taste. When you are making a pot of tea - using loose tea of course - you will see the tea leaves uncurl and expand dramatically. This uncurling and expansion is called 'the agony of the leaf'.
