black or white; one sugar or two?

At the ripe age of 22, I did the UK pilgrimage-2-year-visa-stint that a lot of Aussie youths find themselves doing. I had just finished Uni and could not care to look at another text book or sit through another lecture so where did I find myself ~ Plymouth, South-West England of all places. A call centre job was paying the bills and while I don’t remember much about the auto-spiel that I once could recite in my sleep to English train travelers, I do remember this lady in a blue smock and her tea trolley that rolled past my desk at 10am and 3pm every day. For 10p/day, this gave me endless cups of strongly brewed EBT otherwise known as English Breakfast Tea. Mainly a cappuccino drinker before that, this is where I deem my love for EBT truly began!


Whilst in the Barossa Valley late 2010, I visited Maggie Beer’s foodie farm and amongst other kilos of jam jars and verjuice bottles, I bought a packet of Scullery Made Tea, in particular the Barossa Breakfast blend. This loose-leaf blend leaves Twinings, T2, Lipton and any other brand for that matter to shame. With one teaspoon for me and one teaspoon for the pot, a good lug of boiling water and 3 minutes up my sleeve to give it some decent brewing time, it definitely makes one cup of damn good EBT. So far I have only seen it for purchase via Maggie Beer’s website.

Oh and if you’re wondering, I love my tea strong with one sugar and a dash of milk.

  1. Hello ELG,
    I’ve just stumbled across your blog – it is wonderful!
    I’m also such a fan of Scullery Made Tea – my favourite is Chocolate Marmalade, it’s incredible.
    I’m based in Melbourne so buy mine online directly from the tea maker – http://www.scullerymadetea.com.

    • Hi Amanda,
      Thanks for your feedback about eatlovego….hope you keep reading!
      Chocolate Marmalade sounds delightful…is it very sweet or more of a hint of a taste? Hard to imagine as a tea!

  2. I don’t find it overly sweet at all. It’s a delicious balance of black tea and chocolate – nothing like a hot chocolate but the taste of the cocoa is evident – you’ll have to try it! I also love the beautiful brown bags that the tea comes in – makes the brewing process just that little bit more special.

    Look forward to following your blog.

    Amanda.
