Some of our black teas are really well suited to milk. A hearty way to start your day would be to brew a strong cup of Breakfast Baritone which can take milk nicely. Another good option is English Breakfast, other black teas are considered self drinkers (no milk recommended) such as the Darjeeling. If you are adding milk we recommend a generous measure of tea, brewed with boiling water and a large serving of patience – let it steep for at least 4 minutes. Don't forget to warm your teapot first to maintain the heat of water as high as possible during the steeping process.
