Only high-quality and properly brewed tea can be the most delicious and healthy.
Remember that tea is a food product. So that the tea party does not end in a spoiled mood, and even worse, in a hospital bed, take it seriously.
To begin with, carefully examine the packaging, it should contain all the necessary information, starting from the composition, growing area and packaging address, ending with the date of packaging and the method of preparation.
Take a close look at the dried tea leaves before placing them in the teapot. A high-quality product should be of almost the same shade, size and curl, without broken leaves, stems and other “dust of Georgian roads”.
Brew tea correctly. In order to preserve the flavoring and biologically active substances for the sake of which you decided to indulge in tea again (how many times a day?), Determine what type of tea you have in your teapot.
Brew teas such as black, pu-erh and oolong with boiling water at a temperature of at least 90 degrees. This is how these fermented teas will best reveal their properties.
If you lean on more healing, unfermented green and white tea, the temperature of the water during brewing should be more gentle, not higher than 75-80 degrees, otherwise you risk getting an unnecessarily bitter and tasteless drink.
Drink only freshly brewed tea. Strong brewing “for future use” deprives this truly healing drink of aroma and antioxidant properties that have a positive effect on your body. In addition, by storing brewed tea for several days, you turn your kettle into a breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria.
