DETAILS:
Winston Churchill, arguably the most notable British Prime Minister in history, was a noted lover of drink. Although he is most known to have had a penchant for the strong stuff, namely whiskey, he also had an immense fondness for a cup of rich tasting English Breakfast. Palate aside, Churchill was also notable for good one-liners. One of his more famous quotes has to do with a nice British cuppa and is taken from a dialogue he had with Lady Nancy Astor, an American who became a member of the British Parliament. It should be noted that the two were not friends! "Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea." "Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it." Well, luckily for England Nancy didn't follow through on her threat. Had she done so, we certainly hope that she didn't intend to taint a cup of English Breakfast as savory and pure as this Organic variety. This is exactly the kind of tea Winston would have quaffed down by the pot-full. Blended using certified organic teas from Sri Lanka, China, and Tanzania; this tea is full- bodied, astringent, with subtle touches of jammy toast. With a little milk and a dash of sugar, this tea makes a perfect compliment to a proper English breakfast (the meal!). Here's to Winston, Nancy, and England! (Like all of our Organic teas, no pesticides or chemical fertilizers were used in its production.)


FOR HOT TEA:
Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea `Straight Up'

FOR COLD TEA:
*One Quart* Place 6 teaspoons of tea in a heat resistant pitcher. Add 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water. Steep 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with ice water. Added steeped tea and fill with ice water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. (Please note: Top quality tea may cloud when iced (it is okay) due to their high polyphenol levels).
