Making the Perfect Cup of Tea
An enjoyable cup of tea is easy to make, but so many people do it incorrectly. Follow these simple steps to make a delicious cup, every time.
Begin by pouring spring water into a medium-sized pot and set it on the stove at medium-high. Cover with lid to help water heat evenly.
Next, prepare your teapot by placing your desired tea bag inside. Usually, one pot will take two bags for a good brew. Check the packaging instructions to be sure of the potency.
You will hear a gurgle sound coming from the pot. When this begins to happen, remove the lid, and keep a close eye on the water.
Bubbles will appear on the surface of the water. Remove the pot from the heat and let stand for one minute. Remember to place the pot on a heat-resistant surface or cooling stand.
Add water to teapot and let steep for 5 minutes.
Your tea is ready for your finest china. Enjoy!
