INFORMATION:
Throughout history there has always been an association between royalty, lifestyle and tea. For example, tea's fate in Britain took a turn in 1662 when King Charles II married the Portuguese princess, Catherine of Braganza. Britain's new queen was a confirmed tea drinker long before she arrived for her wedding. As part of her dowry, she brought with her a chest of Chinese tea. Soon, she began serving it to her aristocratic friends at Court. As word of the new beverage spread, more and more people wished to try it for themselves.

Ladies enjoyed tea at home, while gentlemen often drank their tea in the coffee houses that had been established in the City of London. Tea consumption progressed further and over time it became very fashionable in London to have afternoon tea. At these gatherings dainty sandwiches and delicate cakes were served. We can only imagine what these gatherings would have turned into had they been able to enjoy a lightly and elegantly flavored Strawberry Lemon tea. No wonder this tea is called Lady Londonderry.

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
