The Best Way to Brew Tea

There are many ways to brew tea, but the best brewing method is to give you rich flavor tea. 

The best way: Fill your kettle with fresh water and heat it to the proper temperature, that when you pour it over your tea so it infuses properly.

Warm the teapot or your mug with the hot water. Pour some of the heated water in your teapot or mug and swish it around, then dump it out. This will keep your tea hot for a longer period of time.

Add your tea. For most loose-leaf teas, add one teaspoon to the cup or infuser for an 8-12 oz. cup. If you’re brewing a pot of tea, add one teaspoon for each cup.

Pour the water and brew the tea. Let your tea infuse for three to five minutes depending on your desired strength. When your tea is steeped, remove the infuser or strain your tea to remove the tea leaves.

Most types of tea should only be brewed once, although some stronger teas can be brewed twice. Tea in bags should only be brewed once. Brewing again will extract more tannins, leaving you with a bitter tea. If your tea is too hot to drink, put a spoon in it for a minute to cool it down. Enjoying a flavorful cup of tea is a great way to relax and enjoy the moment.
