What can I add into my cup of tea?

Traditionally it has been recommended by the purists to enjoy tea without additives in order to retain the true flavour, smell and texture of the tea.

However, with the spread of tea worldwide, many cultures have developed their own unique ways of drinking tea. 3 common additions to tea are:

Sweetener
Many people find the addition of honey as a fragrant sweetener – it is richer and fuller in taste than sugar. It is a great natural addition to many black classic teas and it can bring out the flavours in fruit infusions.

Mix and match your tea and honey, you may find some interesting combinations.

Lemon
Lemon, or lemon juice isidea for those who enjoy a bit of zest in their tea. Lemon iced tea with a little drizzle of honey or clear syrup (made with caster sugar) is one of the popular drinks in South East Asia.

Many black classic tea marry up with lemon quite nicely. A skinny slice of lemon also goes well with our Turkish Apple Tea.

Milk
Milk helps to give tea a fuller taste. We recommend a stronger cup for a milk and tea combination.
For those with weaker stomachs, milk is a great way to help you enjoy tea because it calms the stomach. Milk is also a great source of calcium.
If you like a richer tasting milk-tea, try using evaporated milk. A good cup of Chai or Rooibos can be finished off with evaporated milk and a little drizzle of honey.

What else?
Well, that’s up to your imaginations! We have tried peppermint, lemonade (the soft drink), orange juice, cinnamon, sweetened condensed milk, flavoured milk, chocolate sauce…
