We’ll show you below as to how you may brew a cup of great tea, Darjeeling tea to be precise. By following a few simple tricks and rules of brewing you’ll be able to brew black teas perfectly.
- Bring water to a boiling state because high temperature is required to extract the elements of the black tea out into the water. (An article on how to make sun tea would be of interest to you too)
- Choose an open vessel, preferably a copper vessel, for brewing. Wider vessels allows the loose leaves to unfurl completely thereby presenting the optimum satisfaction to your cups.
- Add about a teaspoonful to a cup of water (For high quality fine loose leaf teas such as the Darjeeling tea. For broken leaves or others, half a tea spoon would suffice.)
- Steep the leaves in the above mentioned vessel with a lid covering for about 3 minutes for fine teas. (For broken or others anything between half a minute to two minutes would give the desired results)
- Strain them in a wide open cup. (Because this allows the aromas to reach the olfactory organs much better and also allows a better view of the colouring effect the tea has. Teas are to be savoured with optimum senses. How many can you involve?)
- Your elixir is now ready to be enjoyed. Pamper yourself to this one of a kind flavour in a relaxed frame of mind because tea and tensions, never were friends.
- Happy Sipping.
