This is my favourite tea for sitting in the late afternoon sunshine sharing a pot with friends. Will be extra pleased when it finally comes from Sri Lanka
I am enjoying this tea. Not as strong as black breakfast however a really good flavour and a strength I like. Interesting package!
Easy ordering and prompt delivery. Tea leaves smaller than anticipated so wonder if its broken orange pekoe but taste OK.
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
