Bad tea

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

Does any­one know why tea is served so badly in Auck­land, es­pe­cially at ex­pen­sive cafes which should know bet­ter? All this rev­er­ence for cof­fee but the “barista” can’t make a de­cent pot of tea.

We get luke­warm wa­ter with a bag thrown in the saucer or silly cages full of some­thing like sea­weed which barely touches the wa­ter be­cause the pot is only half full, and never enough milk. Strong dark tea must have boil­ing wa­ter poured over it and milk is not an op­tion you get “on the side with that”. Try the Corona­tion Restau­rant in Man­gere Bridge. They do it right at the right price.
