Ingredients

  • 2 tsp loose leaf Earl Grey tea
  • boiling water

Method

Put 2 tsp of loose leaf earl grey tea into a teapot.

Fill up the pot with boiling water. As this is black tea, you can't really scald it as it is already oxidised.

Leave to steep for about 5 minutes.

Purists will want to drink it on its own, but you can serve it with a splash of milk or a slice of lemon.
