How to make a cup of tea using tea bag?
Brewing a good cup of tea involves the coming together of delightful flavour and a tempting aroma. Some even say that- “blending tea is a fine art”. With all the information and the thousand different methods of brewing ‘the perfect cup’ it can become complex or confusing.
Follow this quick and easy step-by-step guide to make a top-notch cup, using teabags. The best place to start is to choose the right tea according to your mood and personal preferences. So picking the right tea is crucial when you want to make the perfect cup of tea.
Here’s what you’ll need-
- Teabag of your choice
- 150ml of hot water
PLACE THE TEABAG IN A CUP
The first step is to place the teabag of your choice into an empty cup. Depending on the mood and preferences, one can choose black tea when in need of a little energy boost or a nice cup of chamomile when looking to relax. There's tea for every mood and setting.
POUR IN HOT WATER
The next step is pouring the hot water into the cup. The key is to find the right balance. Water that is too hot will end up in burnt tea leaves and too cold will give you a flavourless drink. To make sure you get the best results, we recommend using water that is just under boiling temperature.
Gently dunk the tea bag into the water a few times as it reduces the concentration around the leaf and induces dissolution so that the tea leaves can release their flavour and aroma.
REMOVE TEA BAG FROM CUP
The steeping time varies according to the type of tea. It takes 2-3 minutes for green tea, 3-4 minutes for black tea, 3 minutes for oolong tea, 4-5 minutes for white tea and tisane. The final step is to remove the teabag from the cup and serve. Your delicious, healthy cup of tea is ready. Enjoy the perfect cup of tea!
