How to make the perfect cup of tea


“When your day seems topsy turvy, and as stormy as can be, there’s nothing quite as tranquil as a nice hot cup of tea!”

A good cup of tea is synonymous with British culture. In offices and places of work across the land tea is being consumed throughout the day. The average Briton devours 900 cups of the stuff a year. But is there such a thing as the perfect cup? Or is it just an impossible dream?

When all is said and done, what it all boils down to is personal preference. So with an office full of people, each with their own ideas on what constitutes perfection, maybe the impossible part is pleasing everyone. So how to solve the puzzle. We think we have the solution. We have designed a handy guide that you can print off and keep safe by the kettle. There is a helpful space on the back where people can select their personal preferences in terms of sweetness and colour based on Pantone® colour references.

Whether you prefer a sugary Builders, a sugar-free Werthers Original, or plain Grannys Tights… Just download our pdf, print it off and pass it around the office.

So that’s tea time conquered then? Not quite. If you think you are already the master of brewing perfection – then you can test your tea knowledge with our tea-time quiz. Or if you feel like you need more information before stepping up to the kettle again, we have made a handy video to clam your nerves.

Now go forth and brew… better
