Tips for Brewing the Perfect Pot of Tea

The best pot of tea doesn’t come from bags.  You’ll get more flavor for the fraction of the cost if you use loose tea.

Interesting Facts About Tea  

Loose Tea Leaves and Petals in Jars

1) In 1908 the tea bag was invented by accident by Thomas Sullivan.  He sold tea and made silk bags to give the samples of tea to his customers.  

Some of the customers thought the bag of tea went directly into the pot and the tea bag was invented.  

2) Tea used to be very expensive.  It was usually stored in a tea chest that remained locked in between sittings.  How lucky are we that it’s no longer pricey?  

3) The most popular beverage in the world is water.  The second most popular beverage?  You guessed it, tea.  

4) In the Himalayans, it is traditional to add butter to tea.  

Tips about Loose Leaf Tea

1) You want to make sure you store tea in a sealed container because it absorbs moisture.  

2) Milk and lemon juice shouldn’t be put together in tea.  The lemon juice will curdle the milk.

Here are the Tips for Brewing the Perfect Pot of Tea: 

1) Boil the water  

Boil filtered water in an electric tea kettle or heat up a tea kettle on the stove.  

If you don’t have an electric tea kettle, you don’t know what you’re missing. You can find one here.  

2) Warm up the teapot

Pour a small amount of the boiled water in the teapot and swirl it to warm it up.  Leave it for about two minutes and pour it out.  

3) Loose-leaf tea 

For each person add one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea and one cup of water.  

4) Steep

Let the covered teapot steep for 3-5 minutes, depending how strong you like your tea.  Don’t over steep it, because if it steeps too long it will become bitter.  

5) Strain  

Pour the brewed tea into teacups with a strainer.

6) Serve

Have your favorite accompaniments like cream, sugar, liquid stevia, sugar cubes, and lemon slices.
