There is more to tea than meets the eye. Do you know the the tea of every region has a different character? Even tea of the same region has a different aroma, flavour and strength depending on when it is harvested! To appreciate these differences and lose yourself in the true, deeper magic of tea, you need to try it black, without milk. Black tea is best made with tea leaves rather than dust, which has a tendency to get bitter.

Most popular tea brands have a version of pure tea leaves, and it is clearly mentioned on the box too. This recipe shows you how to brew the perfect black tea. Enjoy this light and refreshing drink as it is or with a dash of honey or a little sugar. You may also add a few slices of peaches, strawberries or lemon to this tea to make a more exotic drink! If so, add the fruit slices towards the end of the infusion time, not letting it soak for more than 1-2 minutes.
