The humble cuppa. It may seem simple, but there is an art to making the perfect brew. Tea has been bringing people together for centuries but a bad cup can be divisive! Arla Cravendale is fresh milk – filtered for purity – so it tastes delicious. Kickstart your day with the perfect tea with this handy guide to creating the ultimate brew.
The science behind tea
Bag left in, bag left out. Brewed for a minute, brewed for five. Everyone has their own methods when it comes to the fine craft of tea making. It can take a bit of practice, but there’s nothing quite like sipping on the perfect morning cuppa.
Milk and tea a perfect match
Milk in first or milk in last. Light and creamy or dark and fruity. When it comes to the perfect breakfast tea, a splash of Arla Cravendale is the perfect finishing touch
How to make a cuppa
Boil your water
Boiling the water not ony heats things up, it oxygenates the liquid too, adding extra flavour.
Heat up your mug
Swirling a little of the boiled water around in the bottom of your mug or teapot ensures things are nice and toasty before you pop your bag in - so your tea stays hotter for longer!
Throw in the bag, top with water
Once the water is boiled, let it settle for a minute. Then pour it over the teabag in your mug, filling up three-quarters of the way. Leave the teabag for the desired time - three to five minutes is peak brewing time.
A splash of milk
Add a dash of Arla Cravendale to top off your tea. Some like it dark, a terracotta colour, others opt for much paler - have a look at the trends here. Then stir it all together and enjoy - ideally with a biscuit too.
A spoon full of sugar
Optional - Some people like their morning cuppa that little bit sweeter. Now's the time to add your sugar - white is best. Simply pop it in post-milk and stir until dissolved.
