How to brew Melbourne Breakfast
- 1 tsp per cup
- 2-4 mins
- 100℃ (212℉)
- 2+ tsp per cup
- 1-2 mins
- 100℃ (212℉)
Add 1 teaspoon of Melbourne Breakfast to your infuser and place the infuser in your cup or mug. To make a pot, the general rule is 1 teaspoon per 250 ml/8.4 fl oz.
Fill the cup or pot with freshly boiled water. Avoid heating water in the microwave.
Infuse for 2-4 minutes, or to desired strength.
Remove the infuser. Add a splash of milk and your favourite sweetener if you fancy it. Sip and enjoy!
If you like your morning cuppa extra strong, add an extra scoop of tea instead of brewing it for longer to keep the bitterness at bay and the flavours shining bright.
Add 2+ teaspoons of Melbourne Breakfast per 250 ml/8.4 fl oz water to your infuser and place the infuser in your cup or jug.
Half fill your cup or jug with freshly boiled water. This ensures there’s plenty of room to add ice later.
Infuse for 1-2 minutes, or to preferred strength.
Remove the infuser and leave to cool. If adding sweetener, add while it’s still hot to ensure it dissolves. Once cooled, add your choice of milk if desired.
Top with ice and serve.
We love doing an even split of Melbourne Breakfast with another sweet desserty tea like Jade Mountain or Caramel Brownie.
Don’t take our word for it
I really enjoyed this tea as a less strong English breakfast
with a some great underlying flavors.
This is the queen of teas.
Smooth and tasty with a complex aroma that is sweet and bewitching. It’s moreish and delightful... my favourite tea by far!
Melbourne Breakfast is so satisfying in the morning with a bit of milk.
It is mild but flavorsome with the hint of vanilla. It is excellent if you do not like tea with too much tannin.
Marmalade Melbourne Mule
1In a heatproof jug, add the brown sugar, marmalade and Melbourne Breakfast. Add boiling water to the mixture and steep for 3-4 minutes.
2While the mixture is steeping, fill a highball glass with ice and add Scotch Whisky (we use Scotch for this as it has more peaty, deep flavours than Irish Whisky).
3Strain the tea mixture into your highball glass using a fine sieve to fill just over half your glass. Top with soda water, a twist of orange peel and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
