Brewing the Perfect Cup of Tea

Do you enjoy tea? Learn how you can make your favorite tea taste even more tasty.

* START WITH COLD, CLEAR WATER
Tea is mostly water. If you have water with strange flavors in it, it makes sense that your tea would taste strange as well! Give your normal tea a try sometime with your regular water vs bottled water. See which one you prefer. Also, start with cold water for the best flavor.

* PREHEAT THE TEAPOT
If you´re using a teapot, make extra water hot and put it in the teapot to heat it. Then discard it and put the real water you´ll be drinking into the pot. This will keep the actual drinking water from getting cold as it heats the pot up.

* STEEP FOR THE PROPER TIME
Tea is very sensitive to the amount of time it´s steeped. Just like cooking chocolate chip cookies for 2 minutes vs 10 minutes vs 20 minutes makes a HUGE difference, so does the steeping time. Pay attention and don´t over or under steep.
