How to Brew a Perfect Cup of Tea
How to Brew Tea:
Black Tea, Green Tea, Oolong (Wulong),White Tea, Herbal Tea, etc.
Herbal Teas: (Infusions)
STEP 1: Start with cold water.
STEP 2: Preheat your teapot: Simply boil enough water to fill the teapot one and one half time. Pour the hot water into the teapot, swish it about. This will heat the teapot up.
Then pour the used water out. Many people do not do this. Without doing this step your tea becomes luke warm quickly
STEP 3: Measure into the teapot 1 tsp. of loose tea for every cup you plan to pour,
plus one for the pot. Trust me on this, it will make a difference.
STEP 4: For black teas, bring the water to a full boil. Remove the teakettle from the heat as soon as the water begins to boil. Boiling all the oxygen out of the water will flatten the tea's flavor.
STEP 5: For more delicate green teas, remove the teakettle from the heat before the water begins boiling, at 165-170 degrees F (74-77 degrees C). Or you can add 1 part cold water
to 4 parts boiling water to cool it to the ideal temperature range.
STEP 6: Before steeping, pour a small amount of the hot water over the tea leaves, to allow them to bloom, or open up, and release some of their bitter tannins. Drain immediately.
STEP 7: Fill the pot with the boiling water. Keep the spout of the kettle close to the teapot,
so the water does not cool as you pour it in. Cover the teapot and leave the tea to brew. In general, black teas are best brewed for 4 to 5 minutes; green teas should brew for no more than 3 minutes.
STEP 8: When the tea is ready pour. Avoid keeping leave in contact with the hot water.
Over-brewed tea will become better, and unpleasant.
