Good Afternoon tea blend: comprises China and Indian teas.
These teas are used to give a light, fragrant afternoon tea blend with a little smokiness. Very moreish, it can be drunk with or without milk. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot. Infuse with freshly boiling water for four minutes.
P G Wodehouse would have approved: “The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured cosiness.”
