Steps for Tea making
Using fresh water, pure water or rainwater if you have it, fill your kettle with only as much water as you need. Extra water means extra heating time and costs you more electricity, unless of course you have Gas as Electric Kettles pull a lot of power.
- When boiled pour a small amount of the water into your Teapot,remember always heat your pot first,swirl around tip out.
- Add the required amount of Tea to your Teapot, this will vary according to your taste.
- I was always taught by my 86 year old Tea lover Dad,one spoon for each person and one for the pot. This can be adjusted.
- Fill nearly to the top of the Teapot with the rest of your boiling water and leave the lid off, so as not to stew (over cook) the Tea
- Steep (soak) the Tea leaves to release the flavour and nutrients of the Tea Leaves
- Leave for 2-3 minutes.
