Tea Making Tips c.1941

Welcome to the world of a national obsession. This is a captivating 10-minute film clip (c. 1941)from the BFI National Archive about producing tea en masse for the troops and bombing victims during wartime England . Included are 6 tips for making proper tea:

1. Always use a good quality tea.
2. Always use freshly drawn water.
3. Remember to warm the teapot or urn.
4. Measure the right quantity of tea for the amount of water in the pot.
5 The water must reach boiling point; pot-to-the-kettle, not kettle-to-the-pot.
6. Let the tea brew for 5-10 minutes before serving.

"Let every cup you make be a cup that cheers."

Good advice and a great find, Denise! (Tho I might think that the 10 minute brew is mighty strong!)

Thank you for your wonderful comment and I look forward to reading your new blog charting your journey. Perhaps when you are settled in over here we could go for tea somewhere! It would be nice to meet up - I've really enjoyed reading your blog over the last couple of months.
