Making tea is an art form. For those who start with quality loose-leaf tea, the goal is to get the best out of the product. The right water, the right temperature, and the correct steeping time are all crucial factors in making tea. For a long time, we in the West didn’t pay much attention to these details, but now we’re beginning to understand the nuances and increasingly appreciate the importance of the brewing method. And rightly so, as it makes a world of difference.
If you’re using loose-leaf tea, you’ll need a filter or a tea infuser. This allows the loose tea leaves to steep and be removed when the tea has steeped sufficiently. Some teapots even come with a built-in filter. Tea makers are also very trendy nowadays; they’re a great way to pleasantly surprise your guests, and they can also be used to easily make ice-brewed tea, for example.
A good kettle is crucial. Most kettles can only boil to 100 degrees Celsius, which causes the tea to lose much of its aroma and results in a bitter taste. Oxygen is also lost when water reaches boiling point, and oxygen is essential for the taste of the tea. That’s why, like wine-tasting, you should slurp your tea—yes, you can do that shamelessly. The correct temperature is therefore essential. At Thee.be, we offer various types of kettles for different budgets. Once you’ve gotten your water to the right temperature, it’s important to also keep an eye on the steeping time. You can time this with a digital timer or do it charmingly using an hourglass.
For those interested in the ceremonial route, Thee.be also has you covered. We offer various tools for the traditional Chinese tea ceremony known as Gong Fu Cha. Prefer matcha?
