Orange Tea

For a tea in the English fashion, you especially need soft water. At higher degrees of hardness you should descale the water with a filter.

1 organic orange
1 liter of soft water
4 tsp Assam tea
3 tsp Ceylon tea
Sugar to taste

Step 1
Wash the orange hot, peel off a 5 cm long piece of paper-thin shell, place in a heatproof jug. Orange squeeze out the juice through a sieve to orange peel.

Step 2
Boil the water, pour the scalding half of the orange juice and let stand for 5 minutes. Preheat a teapot. Fill both types of tea in a tea strainer or a tea bag and put into the pot.

Step 3
The remaining pour hot water over the tea leaves, put the pot on a warmer and let the tea infusion draw 3-4 min. Remove the tea strainer and pour the orange extract to the tea, taking care to remove the orange peel. Pour the tea into tea glasses and serve with sugar.
