English Breakfast Peach Tea
- 1-2 tsp of English breakfast tea
- ½-1 level tsp of brown sugar or honey (optional, as peaches impart a natural sweetness)
- ½ large ripe peach
- 1 tbsp of milk, if desired
- 1 cup of water
Prepare the Peach: Begin by thoroughly washing the peach. If you're using an organic peach, retain the skin as it adds depth to the flavor. Slice the peach into thin wedges.
Boiling the Water: In a kettle or saucepan, bring the water to a rolling boil. The boiling temperature ensures the best extraction of flavours from both the tea and the peach.
Infusing the Tea: In your teapot, combine the English Breakfast tea leaves and the freshly sliced peach wedges. Ensure they're well-mixed to allow the flavours to blend together seamlessly.
Pour and Steep: Carefully pour the boiling water into the teapot, immersing the tea leaves and peach slices. Close the teapot lid and let the blend steep for 3-4 minutes. This duration allows the robustness of the tea to shine while letting the peach's sweetness infuse the brew.
Straining and Serving: Position a strainer over your chosen mug and pour the tea. As you reach the end, gently press the peach slices against the strainer, extracting any remaining juices and tea extractions.
Sweetening and Creaming: If you prefer a sweeter note, add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Follow with a spoonful of milk, stirring to create a sweet and creamy blend.
Sip and Enjoy: Hold the mug, take a moment to appreciate the aromatic blend of classic tea and fresh peach, and then take a sip. Let the flavours dance on your palate, offering both comfort and invigoration.
Try experimenting with infusing other fruits such as berries, mango or even coconut, for a fresh take on English Breakfast Tea.
