Before you deny the above accusation read on… It may change your life and make your mornings, morning teas, afternoon teas and evening a whole lot better!
Today the New Daily is reporting that research from the UK has found that after surveying 1,000 adults, the majority don’t make their tea the right way.
They found that most people are not brewing their tea for the recommended amount of time making it less flavoursome.
So what is the ideal brewing time?
Five minutes apparently!
Professor Miodownik from the study has said, “What you make tea in, and drink it out of, is important. It alters the taste. Fundamentally, of course, what makes the perfect cuppa is a matter of personal preference.”
“But the next time you are making a pot of tea for the family, or are charged with the office tea round, try and test some different variables – from the type of tea to the length of time you brew it for and what you drink it out of – you might find it takes your relationship with tea to a whole new level.” he said.
The optimum brewing time is two to five minutes and when drinking out of a mug the milk should be poured in after the boiling water. However, if you’re drinking it out of a tea cup with a flatter shape, it is best to put the milk in first.
Now please don’t ask why, because we don’t know, but since their British we’re going to believe them!
So now that you have that information, you can go along and make that perfect cup of tea… If you’ll be brewing it for longer today then you can thank us later!
