If you’re not used to drinking loose tea, or are looking for some tips on how your brewing method could enhance the natural flavours further, here’s how we prepare our Elderflower & Blossom Darjeeling at Twinings:
1. Use fresh, clean water to help develop the flavour
2. Warm the pot or infuser first with a spot of boiled water
3. Use one heaped teaspoon of loose tea per person and one for the pot
4. We recommend that you allow loose tea to brew for up to seven minutes. The general rule is that the larger the leaf, the longer the brewing time and the best times are advised on our packaging.
Elderflower and Blossom Darjeeling should typically be enjoyed without adding milk or sugar, but this is, of course, down to your own personal preference.
