Purists will adore Australian Bush Billy tea in its natural state, with its smokiness swirling around the freshness of the eucalyptus. Sugar (or your favourite sweetener) plus milk or a slice of lemon will instantly convert it into a traditional treat. For those who adore all things sweet and creamy, condensed milk will transport you and your tea to Australian heaven.
In an enamel teacup (for a traditional Aussie experience) or any of your favorite tea vessels. Trusty enamel teacups are ideal for sharing Australian Bush Billy tea with family and friends by the campfire. In the colder months, serve in large mugs you can wrap your hands around and keep the teapot warm with a tea cosy that would make your nanna proud.
Its own smoky self so you can savour the full depth of its natural flavour. For a true-blue Aussie experience, you can’t go past freshly baked damper drizzled with jam or golden syrup. Though damper is usually a campfire treat, you can also honour Aussie traditions by dunking your favourite bickie in your Bush Billy tea.
In the land downunder, tea time refuses to be pinned down. If you feel like tea, then it’s tea time! Just think twice before indulging in an evening brew as you may find yourself buzzing well into the night.
