Preparation: Bring fresh water to the boil. Warm up your tea pot by rinsing it with hot water. Fill one teaspoon per 6 oz cup of this Black Tea into the preheated tea pot or preferred cup. Pour the hot water into the tea. Let infuse up to 5 Minutes and serve. Remove infuser or pour your tea into another tea-pot or thermos carafe.

Notes: Among the many achievements Thomas Lipton could list, here a few that were the inspiration for us to create a tea selection in his honor. In the late 1890’s Thomas Lipton acquired a couple of tea estates in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) with the goal in mind to make tea selections affordable and available to every person on the British, Scottish and Irish isles, bypassing the custom that only the higher classes are entitled to the precious drink. He made it happen.
Other noticeable and great facts during his adventure-filled life: he participated several times in the America’s Cup (and lost every time without losing the courage for another race); towards the end of his life he purchased a mansion that he donated to a group of nuns; and another one to donate as an orphanage for young males; and after his passing it turned out that in his will he left his accumulated fortune to the city of Glasgow (hence the name of our tea selection).
