The classic infusion is probably the most simplest – and therefore the most popular – brewing technique that works well for all teas. You can control the temperature and steeping time so the tea will be of the strength you desire. Here’s a tea recipe you can’t go wrong with.
Step 1: Heat water to the desired temperature. Ensure the water isn’t boiling as very high temperatures can easily destroy the delicate notes in the tea. Place the tea leaves in an infuser.
Step 2: Pour hot water over the tea leaves until they are submerged.
Step 3: Let it steep for the recommended time. Take care not to over-steep.
Step 4: Remove the tea leaves. Pour the infusion into a cup and enjoy.
Depending on the tea, you can choose add-ons like sugar, milk or honey. A dash of lemon juice or mint adds flavor. Mostly, they are best enjoyed plain.
