Prepare a good cup of tea is an art.
The following are the five golden rules to better prepare a black tea, in a practical way, but without abandoning the traditional principles governing the ritual of tea:
* Prepare a number of packets equal to the number of cups you want to prepare. Consider typically one packet every 200 ml of water.
* Always use water fresh, avoiding boil several times (eg. Leaving residual water in the kettle).
* Bring water to a boil and then immediately put too steep the tea bags, with very hot water (90-100° C). For the teapot, porcelain is preferable.
* Leave to infuse up to the attainment of the desired aroma intensity, typically between 1 and 3 minutes and then remove the bags from the teapot.
* Serve plain or with added lemon or milk and sweeten to taste, according to your tastes.
Do not you have a porcelain teapot but a modern kettle? A little trick may be to carry out the ‘ infusion directly into the cup (glass or porcelain), preferably preheated with hot water (this will prevent the infusion to cool too quickly when poured into the cup). Then put a sachet of tea and pour directly into the piping hot water. Proceed as in steps 4 and 5. Always avoid infusing the sachets directly in the kettle (in plastic or steel).
