The Perfect Cup Of Black Tea For A Rainy Day
The rainy season is here, and we all know that means a hot cup of tea and spicy snacks. However, if you want to skip the snacks, we still have you covered with the tea part!
Whether it is black tea or green tea, there is nothing better than a hot cup on a rainy day. Looking out of the window as you sip your tea, there is really no better feeling. How you drink your tea depends entirely on your taste and preferences. Black tea with a little milk and sugar, just plain tea, or tea with other flavouring or additives, the choices are endless. If you are looking for a good recipe for the perfect rainy day cuppa, we can help you.
What’s the best way to enjoy tea on a rainy day?
Our favourite way to enjoy tea on a rainy day is a strong black tea with milk, spiked with a number of spices like cardamom, cinnamon and cloves, and a little sugar – this is a richly flavoured milk tea that is a little on the sweeter side. If you like a little kick, you can even add some garam masala to make a typical cup of Indian masala chai – the quintessential monsoon drink. Make sure you have a hot plate of samosas to wash down with your cup of tea!
All you need to do is find your black tea in the larder and steep it to your desired strength and then add a mix of spices and sugar in order to get the perfect tea experience. However, if sweetened tea is not your thing, then you can always just have it plain as well. The best tea for this is Orange Pekoe Tea which is available on our online store in many varieties and flavors.
Black tea is one of the best beverages to have a on rainy days and it is known to de stress and calm you down. In fact, there is nothing better than the combination of rain and tea - the perfect complement to that book you want to read by the window as you watch the rain fall down! The heat of the tea warms you up as the cold wind blows against your face and you will feel like you have been transported straight to the hills of Munnar!
The perfect cup on a rainy day can be enjoyed hot, but iced tea can also be an option where you simply steep your black tea and chill it or serve it with ice. The two elements go hand in hand, and believe us when we say there is no better experience especially if you are stuck at home with nothing to do! In fact, it is a healthier option than stuffing your face with fried snacks and risking your health. So if you are looking for a healthy alternative, why not opt for a cup of tea instead?
