We love tea here at H is for Home headquarters – green, white or builders’. Always loose leaf of course! It tends to be strong ‘builders tea’ by day, but in the evening we’re a little more refined and opt for Silver Needle, Dragon Pearl, Yellow Sun and the like.
A glass teapot makes for the perfect brew when it comes to these delicate leaves. You can watch the colour and intensity of flavour develop – pouring at your optimum point. Also, some of these more exotic ones such as blooming tea are things of beauty that need to be seen – the petals & flowers unfurling like a spring day as the hot water penetrates the dried ball.
