Storm in A Teacup: The Art of Making Tea

  1. Use a clean teapot. Tea has a tendency to soak up flavors from the residue left inside a the pot.
  2. Boil fresh cold water (use water that just comes to a boil). Use bottled or filtered water.
  3. Pre-warmed the teapot with hot water as this will help to release the flavors.
  4. Use a proper ration of tea to water.
  5. Leave the tea to brew undisturbed for around three minutes.
  6. Stir to distribute the flavors evenly within the pot.
  7. Do not jiggle the teabag in and out of the water.

  1. Morning – English Breakfast
  2. Late Morning – Ceylon
  3. Afternoon – Earl Grey
  4. Late Afternoon – Darjeeling or Lady Grey
  5. Evening – Jasmine Green Tea
