We are using a beautiful tea pot designed by tea guru Alison Appleton
. It’s from her Camellia range which takes inspiration from the organic lines by the very bush that tea comes from.
The teapot has a steel diffuser, perfect for brewing loose tea, however, this can be removed when you brew with tea bags. This teapot is available to buy online directly from us at Twinings. co.uk
We recommend, when making a pot of green tea
to use one spoon per person, but with a teapot like this a maximum of two or three heaped spoonful’s would be fine. We are looking for a short brew time and really clear liquor. So in this case - less is more.
Did you also know that with super premium whole leaf teas
like these, you can re-brew your leaves up to three or four times. With each extra brew, just add an extra 30 seconds to a minute to allow the leaves to fully infuse with the water.
Pour away any unused water that’s currently in your kettle and refill with just the amount of fresh water you need for your pot. Best would be to boil it to 80 degrees and then pour it into the pot. Alternatively you can boil your kettle as normal and then just let your water rest for a few minutes before pouring over your leaves in the pot. Pouring boiling water onto whole leaf teas can result in leaf bruising which restricts the infusion process.
