Tips for Brewing the Perfect Pot of Tea

Tips for Brewing the Perfect Pot of Tea will show you how easy it is to make the perfect cozy beverage in minutes.  

“Where’s there’s tea there’s hope.” – Arthur Wing Pinero 

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.  

I just started a new Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life.  It’s a group where we share recipes, pictures of things that leave you in awe, and ideas on how to make your life just a little bit more snug.  Join here to be part of the virtual cozy cabin.  

Make sure you buy a good-quality tea.  It makes a big difference in taste when you buy premium tea or learn how to grow your own tea in this post.  

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

1) Boil. 

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.  

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.

Now no tea party is complete without some yummy items like tea sandwiches, scones, tea cakes, lemon bars, homemade jam or cookies.  

We’ve reached the end of Tips for Brewing the Perfect Pot of Tea.  I hope you enjoyed it!
