How to Make the Perfect Cup of Tea From Leaves
Do you want to make a perfect cup of tea from tea leaves? Here are the steps you need to take:
Ingredients and Equipment
- Tea Leaves
- Tea Infuser
Step 1: Prepare the Kettle
Fill the kettle with cold water and place it on the stove to heat it. When the water starts to boil, turn off the heat and let it cool down for a few minutes if it’s too hot.
Step 2: Measure the Right Amount of Leaves
It is important to measure the right amount of leaves for perfect flavor. You can use 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per cup or 1 tablespoon per pot.
Step 3: Add the Leaves to the Teapot
Add the measured leaves to the teapot. Then place the infuser in the pot. This will make sure the leaves brew slowly, releasing all their flavour.
Step 4: Add Hot Water
Slowly and carefully pour the hot water into the teapot. Ensure that the water does not overflow. Let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea.
Step 5: Strain and Serve
Strain the tea into the cup using a tea infuser or a tea strainer. Add sugar and milk if necessary. Finally, your perfect cup of tea is ready to be enjoyed.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Sit back, relax and enjoy your cup of tea.
