Pairs Well With
Afternoon sunshine and its own tasty self. If you’re peckish, scones, cake or cucumber sandwiches are about as English an accompaniment as you can get.
Who says you have to stick to labels? Enjoy a cup of English Afternoon tea any time the desire for it takes your fancy. Though evenings should be reserved only for those souls who can roll with a late-night caffeine buzz.

Brew it the traditional English way
Boil freshly drawn ambient water in a teakettle to 100°C;. Warm a ceramic teapot by rinsing with the hot water. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup to the teapot and 1 for the pot. Pour in the hot water. Stir and steep covered for 3 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste. Best served in your finest china with milk or a slice of lemon and sugar on the side. Finesse your English tea-drinking etiquette with these handy tips; stir your tea by placing the spoon in a 6 o'clock position in your cup, then back towards 12 o'clock while not clinking against the sides. Place your teaspoon on the saucer with the handle pointing in the same direction as the cup handle. Hold the cup handle with your thumb and forefinger. No pinkies up! Never allow your cup to travel more than 30 cm from your saucer. As for milk in first or last, you choose your side in the debate! Sip with poise and enjoy on its own or with cucumber sandwiches, scones and cake.
