How to make a perfect tea

How to make a perfect tea

Tea has been the beverage of choice served in honor of guests. However, with the changing time, its purposes have also diversified. In the Nepali society, though tea was primarily consumed to stimulate energy, it has gained prominence for its vast health benefits.

Tea is found in several varieties. From the orthodox CTC tea to orthodox leaf variances, each has their distinct consumption and preparation method. However, connoisseurs agree that the widespread method, which involves sugar, is not only incorrect but also tempers with the original flavor.  

 Here are proper steps to brew a perfect tea:

1. Use fresh and cold water while brewing.

2. Different tea varieties need different temperature.  White, green and oolong are delicate.  Excessively hot water will bruise their leaves and give bitter taste.  So, the best method is to infuse at a lower temperature. 80 degree is the preferred temperature. For black tea, crank up the heat.

3. Use one spoon or two grams of tea for a cup.

4.  Leave tea in hot water for 4 to 6 minutes before serving.
