Learning how to make tea is simple but there are definitely some steps to keep in mind for the perfect cup of tea every single time.
This guide will share everything you need to know about tea, including the three most important things to consider when making tea.
The amount of tea you need depends on how much water you use. I recommend one teaspoon of loose leaf tea or one tea bag per one cup of water you plan on using to brew.
You’ll want to start with fresh cold water, and allow it to heat in the kettle. Once your kettle has boiled, wait for about a minute to two minutes for it to cool a bit.
Follow these guidelines for the ideal temperature: - 140-180 degrees Fahrenheit for Green and White tea leaves. - 200 degrees Fahrenheit for Black tea.
Fill up half of the teapot with some of the hot water. Stir it around a few times, then pour out the water. We are preheating the teapot.
Now, pour your water onto the leaves in your pot. Tea steeps for anywhere from 2-7 minutes depending on the type of tea you are using.
