For many of us a lovely cuppa (or three) is crucial to happily getting on with our day. Obviously, tea paired with cake enables us to get on even more happily. September’s meeting managed to combine both these delights with a talk from Hebden Tea and our usual refeshments.
Okan from Hebden Tea, despite his nerves, delivered an excellent talk about tea (obviously). He introduced black, green and white teas and explained the differences. He spoke about the best way to prepare the different teas including temperature, brewing time, milk or not to milk and what equipment to use. We learnt that loose tea is preferable to teabags, milk should be added to the cup last and that ball shaped tea holders are rubbish, a larger diffuser is better as the flavours can infuse more easily. Okan answered everyone’s tea based queries and we all now know how to make the perfect cuppa.
Okan bought along packets of all the teas that were sampled and several members bought some of their new favourites. We are grateful to Hebden Tea for donating 20% of their takings from this to our WI funds.
