Making Tea

Making tea may seem easy enough but there is a definite art to making a good cuppa. It should go without saying that you will only get out what you put in and to that end, always used the highest quality loose leaf or bagged tea that has been stored in a tea caddy, tea tin or airtight container. The water used should be freshly drawn water that has not been previously boiled. The more times water is boiled, the more oxygen it loses which results in a less than flavoursome brew. For each cup of tea, use either one tea bag or a single rounded spoon of loose tea. Always allow the tea to brew for the recommended time before pouring and avoid trying to speed the brewing process by continuously stirring loose leaf or squeezing the tea bag. Finally, if you are adding milk to the brew, this should be put in after the tea has been poured.
