Who can resist this delicious red berry? It is best if freshly plucked from the plant and eaten immediately. Our sweet fruity and creamy creation reminds one of fresh strawberries and sweet whipped cream on a sunny, lazy day by the river. Our strawberries and cream tea, however, contains no unexpected calories. Fans of this tea blend should know that it is fantastic with a dash of sugar and a spot of milk – it’s like dessert in a cup!
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 3 to 7 minutes, according to taste (the longer the steep, the stronger the brew). This tea is enhanced by the addition of milk and sugar, but it is perfectly acceptable to drink it straight up.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can 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. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
To make 1 litre of iced tea: Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant jug. Pour ½ pint (275ml) of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving jug with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher while straining the leaves. Add ice and top up with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
