                    Welcome to Tudor House Tea!


    This is your introduction to the world of fine full leaf teas…teas with
    incredible depth, aroma and flavor…luxurious teas, yes, but an affordable
    luxury! As we sample these rare and exotic brews, we will also learn about
    the time honored tradition of “Taking Tea”, including the history of tea
    time and some tea etiquette. And of course, no tea party is complete
    without scones and other delicious accompaniments, all served on fine
    china.
     More and more people are discovering the serenity and refreshment of tea,
    not to mention the health benefits. It is an indulgence that is actually good
    for us! And Tudor House Teas are the world’s finest. Why? Well, most
    supermarket teas are made from the lowest grades known as “dust” or
    “fannings” (the smallest tea particles). These blends are created from mass
    quantities of low-grade teas, providing a consistent but mediocre flavor.
    Tudor House Teas are full-leaf teas, not broken, containing more of the
    aromatic oils and compounds that give teas their individual characteristics
    and healthful properties.
    Our teas are sourced directly from the finest tea gardens, for hand crafted,
    artisanal quality. Many are organic and/or fair trade. All are delicious!
    So sit back, sip and enjoy a “cuppa”. Ultimately, a tea party isn’t about the
    tea or refreshments…it’s about sharing a ritual that feeds the soul and
    nourishes the senses.
    Drink it in…




           “The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort
           and refinement.”                           ~ Arthur Gray

                                    Tudor House Scone Mixes




Scones are a tea time tradition that originated in Scotland. They usually contain butter and heavy
cream and can be dry and boring. Unlike most scone mixes, ours are low in fat and made with all
natural ingredients and no trans fats. Every flavor is chock full of luscious fruit and tastes delicious.
The best thing about our scones is how easy they are to make. All you add is yogurt! Using flavored
yogurt intensifies the flavor of the scones. Just mix in yogurt, pat out on a baking sheet, cut and
bake. One bag of mix makes 12 scones. Scones taste heavenly fresh out of the oven, but if you
manage to have some left over, you can reheat them on the lowest setting in your toaster. Enjoy!

                                          SC502 Cranberry-Orange


                                 Some Hints for Baking Scones:
      Handle the dough as little as possible and keep it cold. Use cold, lowfat yogurt, not fat-
      free. If you would like your scones milk-free, use soy yogurt. The dough is rather dry at
      first, keep mixing just until it holds together. A stand mixer works well. Flour your hands
        lightly when patting out the dough. The traditional shape to form is a circle, or pat the
     dough into a rectangle about ¾” thick, cut into 6 squares, then cut the squares diagonally
         into 12 triangles. Then separate them (so they get nicely browned and crusty on all
       sides). Use a pizza cutter to cut the scones – easy! You can brush egg or milk on the
     scones before baking, for a nice, golden crust. Or skip cutting altogether and bake dough
            in an 8 inch square or round pan as a coffee cake, with streusel or icing on top.

                    Perfect Tea Every Time
           Here are some tips for perfectly brewed fine tea:
   For 1 cup: Place 1 teaspoon of tea in infuser or filter for black or green
    tea, 2 teaspoons for white or herbal, 1-2 tablespoons for Yerba Maté,
    or to suit your own taste.
   For a pot: 1-2 teaspoons of tea per cup. Preheat pot by filling with
    very hot water, then pour out and add tea when ready.
   Heat water to full boil for most teas, just under boiling for white or
    green tea.
   Pour water over tea into cup or pot.
   Steep 2-4 minutes for most teas. White tea and herbal can steep
    longer, 3-6 minutes, while Darjeeling is best steeped for no more
    than 2-3 minutes.
   Remove tea promptly at the end of steeping time or it will become
    bitter.
   If you want stronger tea, use more tea, do not steep longer than
    recommended.
   Low fat milk is best in tea, cream is too heavy.
   Do not add milk to white, green, oolong or citrus flavored tea.

                                                     1 Cup of Perfect Tea
                                                     Measuring Spoon
                                                     Indispensable! Keep it in
                                                     your tin of tea or your
                                                     silverware drawer.
                                                     Price:    $3.95

          You can naturally decaffeinate your tea this way:
       1. Pour hot water over the tea
       2. Steep 30 seconds
       3. Pour infusion down the drain
       4. Add more hot water
      90% of the caffeine in tea is released in the first 30 seconds             14
