Brewing time for your tea

Organic loose leave teas are becoming increasingly popular as people become more health conscious. Organic tea is made from leaves that are grown without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. This results in a higher quality drink that is less likely to contain harmful toxins. When brewing, it is important to focus on the steeping time. Over brewing can result in an unpleasant, bitter taste. The ideal infusion time for organic teas is between 3 and 5 minutes.

Preparing your organic tea for the correct amount of time will result in a more flavorful cup of tea. It is also important to consider the type of you are preparing. Black teas, for example, should be brewed for a longer time than green teas. This is because black teas contain more tannins, making the drink taste bitter if brewed too long.

When preparing green tea, it is important to use water that is not too hot. This will prevent the drink from becoming bitter. The ideal water temperature for brewing is between 70 and 80 Degrees Celsius and the infusion time is 1-2 minutes. White teas should be brewed just below boiling water, around 80 Degrees Celsius and steep it for 2-3 minutes. Herbal teas can be brewed with either hot or cold water. If using hot water, steep for 5-7 minutes. If using cold water, steep overnight in the fridge.

Tips on how to brew your organic tea correctly

1. During tea preparation

Take care not to over-heat the water. Boiling water will result in a less flavorful drink. Instead, heat the water to just below boiling point. This can be done by either using a kettle with a built-in thermometer or letting the water boil and then allowing it to cool for 1-2 minutes.

2. When brewing your tea

Use fresh, cold water. This will help to extract more flavor from the leaves. If you are using tap water, make sure it is filtered to remove any impurities that could affect the taste of your tea.

3. Using the correct amount of tea leaves

Using the correct amount of tea leaves is also important. A general rule of thumb is to use one teaspoon of leaves per cup of water. However, this can vary depending on the type of the tea you are brewing. If you are using a tea bag, follow the instructions on the packet.

4. Allow the water to cool a little bit by making hot tea

If you are making a hot tea, allow the water to cool for 1-2 minutes after boiling before pouring it over the leaves. This will help to prevent the drink from becoming bitter. For iced tea, brew the tea using double the amount of leaves. This will ensure the flavor is not diluted when it is poured over ice.

Brewing organic tea correctly will result in a delicious tea rich in flavor and antioxidants. Experimenting with different brewing times is important to find what works best for you. Once you find the perfect brewing time for your organic tea, you will be able to enjoy a hot tea that is both healthy and delicious.
