What's your perfect cup of tea?
As any tea fanatic will know, there is no such thing as a normal cup of tea - everyone likes their brew slightly different, which is what makes this such a unique drink.
Here are some of the most common questions that people ask when making a cup of black tea to make sure it is as perfect as it can be!
Some people prefer their tea stronger than others - its strength will be determined by how long you brew the loose leaf tea or bags for.
Remember that leaving them to steep for too long will lead to a bitter taste, so keep an eye on the pot!
Sugar or no sugar?
Sugar or sweetener is often added to tea, but this isn't to everyone's liking!
In some cases, honey is used instead, although this will create quite a different flavour and bring out elements of the loose leaf tea you may not have noticed before.
A splash of milk?
Milk is a common accompaniment to black tea, but it's not for everyone!
There is then the question of how much milk to add to the brew, as some people prefer a milkier taste, while others will want it to be kept to a minimum.
Cup or mug?
There is some debate over how tea should be served, with some arguing that a cup is far more elegant than using a mug!
If you have tea service sets, then make sure you put them to good use - after all, there is little point in having them if they are sat at the back of a cupboard gathering dust.
Whether you opt for a cup or mug is entirely up to you, just make sure you ask your guests how they like their tea and you can't go too far wrong!
