How to prepare Tea

Making a hot steaming cup of tea is no doubt an art. Some like it light, some like it strong while others prefer it with milk and sugar. Also, the method of preparation varies from place to place.

Anyhow, in order to make the perfect cup, the type of tea, the right amount, the temperature of the water and the time of infusion are all very important.

When making green tea, oolong tea and white tea, the water should be around 80 C i.e. when the water just begins to boil. If boiling water is used for preparation then the original flavour of the tea maybe lost.

Usually one cup of tea (200 ml) requires about a teaspoon of tea powder. Lighter teas may require more amount of tea powder. Infusion time also determines the strength of the tea. If you like it strong let it seep longer and vice versa.

Here is the traditional method of preparing a cup of tea or Chai.

  • Combine ½ a cup of water and ½ a cup of milk. 
  • Bring it to a boil in a saucepan. 
  • Add one or two teaspoons of black tea (according to the strength of tea required) and boil for a few seconds. If you are using tea leaves simmer for a few minutes. 
  • Turn off the heat and filter the tea. 
  • Sugar may be added as required.

Your tea is ready to serve!
