How to make Loose tea
Brewing loose tea is really something for which no exact instructions can be given. Everything depends on the kind of tea and your taste preference. That said, here, are some general guidelines.
- Boiling water and then letting it cool removes oxygen from the water and will decrease the flavour of the tea. It's better to bring water up to the appropriate temperature.
- When in doubt, use cooler water. Whereas teas can be ruined by water that's too hot.
- Quality loose tea can be reused multiple times! Just using it once is such a waste. Don't forget to remove the tea from the water between infusions.
- Use clear water: osmoses or spring water, the minerals in the water often conflict with the tea makings its fine aroma harder to come out.
Make sure your tea is high quality and fresh. Ask yourself: Can u smell a dry herbaceous scent from the tea? Is the tea full leave? Does it shine? Does it only have pure tea leaves? If the answer to these questions is yes. Then you got some good tea.
Go and enjoy some loose leave tea!
