    Simple Way to Brew It


    Although there are many tea recipes on how to brew it, the simplest one is placing a teaspoon of tea leaves in water that has been boiled up to 90 degrees Celsius and covering it for the loose leaf teas to steep in the water for 3-5 minutes. Afterward, pour the mixture into a cup and enjoy your healthy cup of tea. Be careful not to brew tea in extremely hot water as this will scorch the leaves and the resulting liquor will be bitter. If you purchase this organic black tea in a package, it is important to look at the product details so that you can get a guideline on how to prepare it.

    The tea flavor largely depends on the amount of tea leaves you put. If you put in too many, it will be bitter while a little amount results in a weak or plain black tea. The final result should have a clear and attractive red color with a slightly smoky aroma. If you brew it properly, it can be your favorite tea and you won’t hesitate to include it in your tea collection.
