Modern Pure Tea drinkers may embrace colourful bone china of the latest hip colours and teas like Japanese Morning Dew (pictured), Strawberry and Champagne Sencha and Rooibos. Offer one of these stunning teas to a traditionalist and you may need to be prepared for polite refusal! When did we get so fancy? Are we becoming more health conscious and the antioxidants are foremost on our mind or is experimental our middle name?
I am a traditionalist when it comes to my vintage teacup collection and I am partial to a pot of Pure Tea English Breakfast Premium in the morning but as a purveyor of fine teas I can only make suggestions about ways of enhancing your tea experience. I encourage you to buy high quality tea, to be conscious of water quality, temperature and infusion times but at the end of the day it is your tastebuds that will guide you. We have created some Pure Tea Infusion Guidelines for you to keep as a reference at home or work if you would like to know more.
We would love to hear about ‘your cup of tea’…..Do you add milk first or last? Is your sugar added at the same time? Do you tolerate leaves in your cup or is this a definite no no? Share your tea ritual, as traditional or not, tea is nicer shared.
Cheers, Fleur x
