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!
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!
