For the quintessential cup of English tea, look no further than our Primetime. A special blend of Assam, Kenyan and Ceylon black teas, each sip delivers a strong, bold and rich taste. Add milk to this, if preferred.
The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water.
Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This black tea has more caffeine than other teas in our black tea range due to the higher amount of tea per tea bag. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.
