Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
This tea tin is not whimsical like the one I featured yesterday, but I do love the beautiful London scene on this one. These are the individually wrapped tea bags in both tins, English Afternoon Tea and English Breakfast Tea.
These individually wrapped tea bags by New English Teas, feature some of the best brewing instructions I have ever seen on a tea bag!
Directions: Place one teabag in each cup. Pour boiling water onto the teabag (100 degrees C) and brew for two to four minutes. Remove the teabag. Alternately use a warmed teapot, adding one teabag per person and one for the pot! Serve with milk or sugar to taste.
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
