Experimenting with Teas

Earl Grey is one of my favourite Fairtrade teas and Clipper do a particularly nice loose leaf Earl Grey tea, which led me to consider how I might experiment with it, as a base for other flavours. I like my tea a little weaker than most, without milk, so that all the flavours of the tea can be savoured. With this in mind, you might want to change the quantities for a stronger brew.

Here are a few suggestions you may enjoy:
