Sarah Ferguson's Fergie's Cup of Tea

RG

Duchess of York says "My mum always said that tea tastes much nicer out of a cup and saucer, and goodness she was right!"

Ingredients

  • Loose tea
  • Boiling water
  • Lemon, milk, or sugar


Instructions

Water must be boiling; not tepid, not merely scalding, but boiling. Just as it begins to boil, pour bit of it into teapot and leave for a minute to warm up the pot. Bring water back to boil again, and throw hot water out of teapot. Add a couple of teaspoons of tea to now-warmed teapot. Boil water again, pour a little of it over the tea, just enough to wet tea and it begins to warm and soak a bit. Wait a minute, then add the rest of the boiling water. Let steep for three to five minutes, depending on how strong you like it. Using a tea strainer, pour into a cup.
