Proper Tea In A Proper Tea Pot
The glorious ritual of brewing Scullery Made Teas is so important to the flavour of the hand blended loose leaves inside each bag. And although it’s all too easy to fitfully throw a tea bag in a cup and gulp the resulting coloured water down, we’re hoping you’ll never want to do that again once you’ve been seduced by the simple joy of preparing a pot of Scullery Made Tea.
Before making your tea, check your teapot and utensils are clean. While this seems obvious, all tea accessories need to be gently washed on a regular basis even if they are just used for boiling water or brewing tea, otherwise you risk tainting the flavour of your freshly made brew.
The general rule for the amount of loose leaf tea is one heaped teaspoon for each tea drinker, plus one for the pot. Pour boiling water, still ‘jumping’, over the tea leaves and allow them to steep for 3 – 5 minutes depending on personal preference of tea strength.
Each hand packed bag of Scullery Made Tea will yield between 20 – 30 cups of Barossa Valley flavour. Your tea will keep best if stored in a cool dark cupboard or pantry. For maximum freshness please consume within 18 months… Let the ritual begin!
