Brew lightly. I was served this in the Betty’s of Harrogate flagship store tearoom and they scalded the tea so it went bitter, which is a shame, because it tastes so lovely and delicate when brewed correctly. I pour a little cold water on the tea shortly before pouring on the nearly-boiling water.

It’s also fun to brew this in a glass teapot, because the little coils unwind one by one. :>

UK student, a dabbler in all teas and coffees. Definitely epicurious.

Open to tea trades if there’s anything in my cupboard that grabs your fancy (or anything on my shopping list you might happen to have :) )
