      This is a simple tip on how to make a great cup of tea.

      1. Boil your water straight away, first thing
      2. Grab an English Breakfast black teabag, and a Rooibos teabag and place in a large cup/mug
      3. Pour your hot water up to 75% of the way up the cup/mug
      4. Use a teaspoon to knock/press the air out of the teabags, and press the teabags against the sides of the cup often so the hot water gets into the teabags
      5. Allow the tea to steep/brew for 3 minutes
      6. Use two teaspoons to squeeze the excess tea out of the teabags – place the the teabag in one teaspoon and press down with the other
      7. Add full-cream milk to taste
      8. Enjoy your strong cup of tea

      Do you have any tips for a good cup of coffee?

      Make sure you follow your preheat routine with your espresso machine, it will make a nicer brew.

      That’s good advice. My machine makes a good brew.

      You’ll have to make a new Tips post about different coffee beans/blends to use.

      Smile and be happy. Be good to your parents. Get outside of the house once per day.
