    Never re-boiled water, as this depletes the oxygen, and the taste of your tea will suffer.

  93. Green tea with mint, i drink it all day long x

    ReplyDelete
  94. I am a huge fan of speciality leaf teas and I have an acorn shaped infuser which I use in my teapot and in a mug. The perfect cuppa is made by pouring water from the kettle once the water has stopped "bubbling" from the boil otherwise it scalds the tea leaves killing a lot of the nice flavour. How long the leaves are left is a matter of personal preference depending how strong a flavour you want

    ReplyDelete
  95. Put in the teabag, then boiling water and then the milk, often with a bit of grated ginger to warm up.
