I love a good cup of tea. Black…..not too strong……no sugar…….sometimes with a slice of lemon. It is most certainly best when made in a well seasoned teapot, and remembering to turn the pot three times in a clock-wise direction and once anti-clockwise. That is something my dad taught me. However it is not always economical to make a pot of tea when it's just tea for one. My mum came up with the solution for me when she sent me a single cup tea infuser. I now use it all the time.
I have given up tea-bags. I disliked seeing that white "froth" on top of my tea that I suspect is residue from the bleach that they use to make the tea bag white. Whatever it is, it can't be good.
I have also taken to bringing out the "good" tea set. Why should it sit in the display cabinet collecting dust. And I have to tell you that a cup of tea somehow tastes so much nicer from a good china cup. To accompany the tea, one must always have a sweet. The one I am having today is sugar-free, gluten-free and soooo delicious. HERE is the recipe.
