Making My First True "Cuppa" Tea

Can you say Tea?! Well, my friends as much I love tea cups, all things British, and tea parties I have to expose myself. I have never had a good cup of true English Breakfast Tea. I have always tried flavored teas at tea parties or gatherings. And to be honest they were okay but nothing I would like to drink on a regular basis.

Well, I decided after reading someone's blog about tea I would try to make a real cup of English Breakfast tea. So, I did what any "normal" person would do.... I researched how to make a perfect "cuppa".




My friends for fun Saturday I pulled out my old tea cup and non matching saucer. Hey...it is what I had.  *Smiles* I bought me some Twinings English Breakfast Tea and made my first ever cup of tea true English/British style.


Verdict...….I LOVED IT!!!! I will be replacing coffee at times I am 100% sure. I loved it. So, did my son.

Okay...what is your favorite tea, how do you drink it, and do you like herbal teas?

Blessings,
Chrissy

  1. What did you put in it? It looks 'milky'....
    I'm all about green tea with raw honey in it. Good for the immune system too!

    1. Hey there! It does have milk as it is the tradition and I was trying to drink it the real way. I was skeptical but it was delish.

  2. YEAH Chrissy ... I’m so glad that you had a good tea experience... I always say ..."If you don't try , you don't know" . The English really do know how to make a lovely cup of tea... I really enjoy herbal and floral teas.. especially Jasmine ... I usually drink my tea black without sugar.... My children make a wicket cup of coffee and it is fabulous ..but when I make coffee, it's terrible ... so maybe I should take a lesson from you ( Ha ha)... only with coffee ....This was a lovely post. Thank so much for sharing your curiosity... Hugs

  3. I'm so glad you enjoyed your English Breakfast Twinings tea. I love their teas and am a big fan of their Earl Grey. I make a pot of tea every morning and if it's chilly I drink it during the day warm. If it's warm I drink it over ice. I use loose tea in my pot using a tea sock. There are all kinds of contraptions to brew tea as you venture more into drinking tea. Your son is adorable. So glad he likes tea!

  6. We only do herbal teas in this house. I like the fruity ones, but when I did drink black tea I loved Constant Comment by Bigelow teas. It was so lovely! Always black for me, no milk or sugar. I'm sweet enough! lol xo

  7. Chrissy,I have Nerada tea which is grown here in Australia. I should get back into drinking herb teas but am probably too addicted to caffeine between my cups of tea and cups of coffee. LOL!

  8. I'm not a fan of English Breakfast tea, but I do like herbal teas and flavored teas. My all-time favorite is probably peppermint and a close second is the newly discovered cinnamon tea at our Barnes & Noble coffee shop.

  9. Hi Chrissy,
    I adore herbal tea, my favourite is peppermint followed closely by licorice tea BUT I must start my day with Sencha green tea brewed in my perfect one tea cup sized teapot, poured into my most favourite fine china tea cup. I so look forward to my tea, it soothes me, wakes me up or calms me down, so much good in tea. Fi

  10. I love all things British too, and even subscribe to Britbox and AcornTV so I can watch British TV shows. An excellent English tea is Yorkshire Gold, it makes a lovely cuppa. My favorite flavored teas are Earl Grey teas, which are flavored with a bit of Bergamot, an oil from a particular type of orange. I am a widow and my favorite cup is an old one of my husband's, I love the cup because it belonged to him.
