Everyone has an opinion on how to make a ‘proper’ cup of tea. The first ingredient must be leaf tea. Not tea bags and certainly not powder. Only black tea is ‘real’ tea in Britain. Tea comes from the plant Camellia Sinensis and depending on the post picking process , can become white, green or black tea
