Whole leaf tea

 

Tips to make a perfect Brew


    • Use a good quality loose leaf or bagged tea.

    • The tea must be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.  Avoid placing it next to strongly flavoured or perfumed foods.

    • Always use freshly drawn boiling water.  Keep in mind that the tap water is usually strongly chlorinated and this can affect the taste of the tea.

    • In order to draw the best flavour out of the tea the water must contain oxygen, whis is reduced if the water is boiled more than once.

    • Measure the tea carefully, use 1 tea bag or 1 rounded teaspoon of loose tea for each cup to be served.

    • Allow the tea to brew for the recommended time before pouring (see table below).
