Brewing the Perfect Cup of Tea

Brewing the perfect cup of tea can be tricky to master, but it’s worth perfecting – all the world can benefit from a good cup of tea! Here are some easy steps to make a great cup of tea.

Gather Your Supplies

Before you start, you’ll need:

  • Tea Leaves or Tea Bags
  • A Teapot or Cup
  • Hot Water
  • Milk or Sweetener (optional)

Boil Water

Boil enough water to fill your teapot or cup and let it cool for a few minutes. Boiling water brings out the flavors of the tea and makes it a better cup overall.

Add Tea Leaves or Tea Bags

Put one tea bag or one teaspoon of tea leaves for every cup of water into your teapot or cup.

Steep the Tea

Cover the teapot or cup with a lid or saucer and let it sit for three to five minutes or according to directions provided with the tea leaves or tea bags. This steeping process is essential for releasing aromatic oils and flavor compounds.

Strain & Serve

If you used loose-leaf tea, first strain the tea leaves before pouring it into your cup. Then add milk or a sweetener to taste. Enjoy your perfect cup of tea!
