When I say ‘I’m a bonafide tea-addict’ I should be more specific for the purpose of this blog post:
I’m a bonafide English Breakfast Tea-addict’
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fairly rigid in my approach to tea. I tend to go for Traditional English Breakfast tea, via a bag (Twinnings tends to be my choice) and if I’m feeling adventurous, loose leaf from Whittard. I do love Peppermint tea, and occasionally try Green Tea, however if you broke down the quota, it’d be 99% Trad eng.
I’m sure any tea connoisseur would be rolling their eyes at me right now… but I’m holding my hands up. It is time for a change, a BIG change.
So with that in mind, here’s what I want to achieve in Twenty SevenTEAn (see what I did there?!)
- Learn about the history & origins of Tea
- Discover the perfect methods of brewing
- Understand the different types of tea
- Make my own tea
- Expand my horizons and taste experiences
- Appreciate, and fall back in love with the rituals of making tea
That just about covers it – and will form the core subject matter of this blog.
I’m really excited to embark on this journey, and I hope you are too!
