Make Do Monday – Proper Tea

I’ve got a busy day ahead so I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and get on with it. As a treat I thought I’d share this video with tips on how to make tea sponsored by the Empire Tea Bureau in 1941.

The six golden rules if you can remember:


Always use a good quality tea.

Always use freshly drawn water.

Remember to warm the teapot or urn.

Measure the right quantity of tea for the amount of water in the pot.

The water must reach boiling point, pot to the kettle not kettle to the pot.

Let the tea brew for 5-10 minutes before serving.

I don’t think much have changed in over 70 years! What is your favourite kind of tea and how do you make it?
