British Tea
  If you want to enjoy a nice cup of milk tea, this recipe is for you. In England, milk is added not only as a sweetener but to lower the temperature of the tea so that you can drink it without burning yourself. For a refreshing cup of British Tea, add a lemon slice instead!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. black tea leaves
  • 24 fl. oz. hot water (208°F)
  • Fresh cold milk, optional
  • Sugar, optional

Fill Zojirushi water boiler & warmer with water and set temperature to 208°F.


Place black tea leaves into the teapot.


When the water temperature reaches 208°F, dispense 24 fl. oz. of the hot water into the teapot. (If using a tea kettle to boil the water, pour hot water directly into the teapot.) Allow the tea to brew for 4 minutes.


Pour fresh cold milk into the cup, if preferred.


Pour tea into each teacup alternately so that the strength of the taste is equal for every cup. Serve with sugar.
