Ceylon (Sri Lanka), is where my tea comes from. Rather than go to the supermarket you can buy in small packets of the best quality Ceylon tea from the web.
We have a ceramic teapot which gets flushed out with hot water to warm
The teapot takes just over a litle of water and we put six slightly heaped teaspoons full of tea directly into it.
The kettle is filled with fresh filtered water (we use filtered water because
we live in a limescale-rich hard water area). As soon as the kettle has
boiled I pour the water directly over the leaves.
Stir and wait 4 minutes before pouring through a strainer into a large mug shaped cup. We have tried both milk first and tea first. Tea first is marginally better according to most people but I grew up with the milk first rule and have always done it that way.
Gawd save 'er Majesty, get it down ya neck!
