Ridgway Tea is part of the Typhoo Tea Company. All Ridgways Teas are made in England, under care of the company’s master tea blender. You can be assured of the highest quality. The teas come in individually wrapped tea bags with a string and tag. So, you can take a few tea bags with you wherever you go.
To Make Perfect Cup of Ridgways Tea
Always fill your kettle with fresh, cold water every time you make tea. If you use previously boiled water, all the oxygen in the water will be gone by the time it boils a second time. The oxygen in the water is necessary to bring out the full flavor in a cup of tea.
First, bring the water to a rolling boil. Then, pour water in a mug over the tea bag. Ridgways recommends using 1 tea bag per cup. Allow tea to steep for 5 minutes and remove the tea bag. Sweeten to taste. Since this is an herbal tea, it is best not to pour milk over the tea.
