  • 1 English Tea Shop teabag
  • Boiling water.


  • Start with a kettle full of fresh water, preferably filtered.
  • If you’re using a china teapot, before the kettle comes to the boil, pour some water from the kettle into the teapot to warm it; swirl it around a bit to get as much of the pot as warm as possible.
  • Use two teabags for a pot, or one per mug
  • When the kettle boils, pour the water straight away into the pot or mug.
  • Let the tea brew for three to five minutes before pouring.
  • Finally, if wanted add milk to tea, not tea to milk, or a slice of lemon and enjoy.
