The perfect cup of tea is something that I cherish. There are all kinds of ways to brew tea but did you know that temperature is key to the perfect cup?
Here is a handy dandy brewing and temperature chart.
Combine the perfect brewing temperature along with the perfect steeping time and the perfect cup of tea appears.
Chris got me the best gift for Christmas several years ago. This time he gave me something that I have had my eye on for quite awhile. A Cuisinart Electric Tea Kettle. When we lived in Australia we used a “boiler” all of the time. They had them in all the hotels and they were what we used. I bought one when we got home but I really did not use it like I thought I would.
The beauty of this one is that it allows you to prepare a pot of water at the perfect temperature for the type of tea that you are planning to drink. Bonus is that it has a feature that keeps the pot of water at that perfect temperature for a time as well. Win win win.
Different types of tea look different when they are brewed. The green tea is obviously lighter in color and requires a lower temperature to brew.
Aren’t you glad you stopped by today? No teapot photo but you got the scoop on how to brew the perfect cup of tea. Enjoy!
