Tea in Britain

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 1950s. 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." Whilst this may have been guesswork back then, the health benefits of tea are now very well known. High levels of antioxidants and slimming benefits are just two.

Simpli-Special Serving Suggestions

Great with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a bit of sugar and milk.

Some people like to add a little honey or sugar, which can even work as a milk substitute.

Also delicious iced, and cold-brewed.

Iced Tea
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - double the amount of tea per cup is recommended.
When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice and then serve.

Cold Brew
For a smoother taste experience.
Place the tea in a jug and add cold water.
Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge)
Strain and enjoy.
