The brisk and slightly tangy character of high-grown India teas makes this one a favorite among Peet’s customers. Like any good English Breakfast, the blend is formulated with milk and sugar in mind. Still, the cup is mild and balanced enough to enjoy straight, allowing the natural lemony qualities of the tea to emerge.
Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 3 to 5 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
