"I am easily satisfied with the very best." – Winston Churchill
Picture this: A long weekend wandering the side streets of Paris - lost in our search for the perfect Salon de The. Hepburn sunglasses, chiffon scarf and slight rouge pout... We are incognito, trying desperately to say in perfect French: "Plus de plus de the, s'il vous plait."
Ingredients: Black tea, vanilla, lemon/orange citrus and a touch of caramel flavoring.
Directions: Heat 6 oz.- 8 ozof water (212ºF preferred) over 1/2 -1 teaspoon of tea. Steep 2-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Caffeine: Yes. If you are sensitive or have an allergy to caffeine, our suggestion is to skip tea and drink herbal infusions or rooibos.
HOW TO MAKE BLACK FLAVORED OR BLENDED TEA
Water: Fresh filtered water is preferred. Do not use distilled water. Depending on your area, tap water may contain chemicals or high levels of minerals which may affect the taste of the tea.
Temperature: Water temperature is just as important as timing. Black teas like water to be boiling (212˚F).
Time: Many guidelines suggest that black tea is best brewed for 2-5 minutes. The longer the brew time, the stronger, more robust and tannic the tea will be. (Don't feel bad if you like your black tea at 1-2 minutes!)
