We know people can be pretty specific about how they like their tea – just try making a tea round in the Twinings office…
We asked our team, including our master blenders, how they like their first cup of the day. You’ll see English Strong Breakfast is a firm favourite to kick start the day!
- Michael: ‘I generally brew English Strong Breakfast for 4 minutes in a pot, add milk first to the cup. I have a glass mug I like at the moment which shows you the colour of the brew which I like as you can judge the strength of the brew.’
- Bryony: ‘Brew time for my English Strong Breakfast is three minutes which really allows the briskness and flavours to develop. Milk is added last.’
- Johanna: ‘I always make tea for myself and my husband first thing. It’s our routine and the morning feels odd without it. I drink English Strong Breakfast: I’m all about strong tea but with plenty of milk. No sugar.’
- Ryan: ‘I drink English Strong Breakfast first thing. I boil fresh water in the kettle and put the tea bag in my mug then fill it about 75%. I’ll leave it to brew for a good 5 mins (sometimes longer) before I take out teabag (without squeezing), then fill the remaining cup with a good splash of milk.’
