Tea in Britain
is known as a nation of tea drinkers despite the fact that the British
were fairly late on the tea scene in historical terms. Tea was first
brought to Britain in Dutch ships and soon proved that popular that the
British government wanted control away from the Netherlands. This was
supposedly achieved by banning the import of tea on anything but
British ships. To get around this tea was transshipped in Holland to
British ships. Not the fame the British wanted with tea, look up
references to High tea, The Brown Betty, The American war of
independence, The Opium wars. Etc, Etc. A fascinating subject.The health benefits of tea were well known way back in the 1950's. The famous coffee house proclaimed that:
Tea makes the body healthy and lusty. Tea is declared to be the most
wholesome; preserving perfect health until extreme old age.
this may have been guesswork back then, the health benefits of tea are
now very well known. High levels of antioxidents and slimming benefits
are just two. Watch out for a tea page coming soon with all sorts of
English Breakfast. Gives a warm and glowing start to the day but can be drunk at any time
now time to throw away the teabags and try a great taste experience.
You may not believe the difference that comes with using premium tea
and brewing in the old fashioned way. Just as coffee has seen a
revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast
beans so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening
around the country, and the world.
Hot Tea brewing method Bring
fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon for each cup into
the pot. Pour boiling water into the pot, cover and allow to steep for

the brew. Add milk and sugar to taste.
