Drinking tea in England has been a tradition for many centuries. There are so many teas usually White Tea, Black Tea, Green Tea and a tea called Oolong Tea, not forgetting the most refreshing Iced Tea. Now they are just types of tea but coming in to brands of tea they come from Twinings to PG to Tetley to Clipper. There are also over 3000 varieties of tea not including fruit infusions and botanicals.
To make the perfect cup of tea you will need to use fresh water, pour it over the tea bag while it's still boiling and allow to brew for 2-4 minutes. The rest then afterwards is up to you.
Tea has had a very very rich history. It has been around for more than 5000 years. During the time its been around it has influenced lots of different nationality's, world leaders and even during some wars!
People enjoy drinking tea in their favourite mugs and teacups and saucers. Loose tea is prepared in a teapot and then served through a tea strainer.
Try making Indian tea, add a tea bag or two to a sauce pan of milk and bring to the boil. Add sugar if desired. This is a very warming tea.
My favourite tea of all is Assam, what's yours?
