The Perfect Cuppa

The Perfect Cuppa


     What Makes the Perfect Cuppa?

At Ringtons, we believe the perfect cuppa is as individual as you are. That means that the perfect cuppa is just how YOU like it and don’t let anyone tell you any different!

There are however a few pointers we can give you to make sure you find your own tea perfection.

Here’s our top six tips to the perfect cuppa!

  1. The Foundation

Choose your teabag wisely. The quality of tea can degrade rapidly if no measures are taken to preserve the freshness. At Ringtons we use processes to ensure the tea is as fresh when you open it as when it was packed. You’ll also want to choose between the many types of tea depending on how you feel and what you have a taste for at that particular moment. Earl Grey? Peppermint? Decaf?

  1. Toot Sweet

Sugar or sweetener? Honey or nothing at all? Do you like that sweetness added to your tea or do you feel it masks the flavor? The choice is yours!

  1. The Great Milk Debate

Before or after? Do you prefer full fat or skimmed milk? Or perhaps you need non-dairy?

  1. Dip it

The length of time a tea bag takes to brew depends again on your taste and the type of teabag you choose. We normally advise 3 – 5 minutes for the flavour to circulate your cup, but again, it’s down to your personal preference.

  1. Colour

The many colours of tea would put a pantone swatch book to shame. From pale golden to deepest, darkest tan, the colour is quite literally the tone of your taste.

  1. Risk it for a Biscuit?

Sometimes a cup of tea isn’t the same without a biscuit on the side. Ringtons have a selection to suit all tastes. Whether you fancy creamy Shortbread, chocolatey cookies or our famous Ginger Snaps, there’s more than enough choice to take your cup of tea to the next level.

To make everything even easier, we’ve created this handy download which you can fill out and keep close by. It’s especially good in the workplace, because as nice as it is to have someone else make you a cuppa, their idea of perfect will be very different to yours. Now everyone will get it just right with this print out to help them.

It works better in colour, but also prints fine in black and white. Fill it in and see how it can work for you.
