Even though it’s almost always up to your personal preferences, there is very little room for error when it comes to brewing. But not to worry! Our master blenders are here to provide a few pointers to help you out and to make your tea taste better.
Brewing Black Tea
Black tea is the perfect start to the day for many people around the world. And, if you are not careful enough, you might end up losing its lively essence. The key here is that while making black tea, you should stand by the kettle, ready to pour as soon as it’s boiled. When brewed close to the boiling point, the black tea tastes better as its rich and robust flavour starts to kick in.
When making tea in a mug or cup, the perennial question is whether to put milk in the vessel before or after adding the hot water. The simple answer is “after”, because if you are doing it the other way round, milk cools the water down, hence hindering all the important infusion process. But if you are using a tea pot, milk can be added first, since this helps prevent the cup from cracking.
If you are looking to sweeten your tea, it is best to use white or brown sugar, or honey.
