I made a pot of this earlier! I like my darjeeling weak and milky, so the fact that Betty’s loose teas are weak unless you use double the amount of tea per person is a mixed blessing. Even when it got strong it wasn’t /too/ strong— it’s probably difficult to scald this one. Good Darjeeling, not as strong as regular types!

Preparation

You may find this hard to believe, but I had no idea what you were talking about with “Betty.” So I went looking, and only then discovered the relationship between Bettys and Taylors of Harrowgate! I haven’t been in England in many years but if I ever get back and there is still a Bettys in Harrowgate (or elsewhere) I will make a point of visiting. And will think of you!

Oh, I’m glad you’ve discovered Betty’s now! :D Personally I don’t know much about the companies but I have visited the Betty’s of Harrogate (lovely place, alas, the lady who served me scalded my green tea) and the Betty’s of York is wonderful, I hear.

It’s unlikely I actually will get to visit Bettys but I would love to. If I ever get back to the UK I’ll be haunting tea shops, yarn shops/spinneries, and wild “gothick” countryside!
