Majority of tea drinkers are satisfied to just simply splash a tea bag in hot water and taking a sip and sometimes even forgetting to take the tea bag out and then drink their favorite cup of tea. Tea Drinking is supposed to be a holistic experience and can be enjoyable and satisfying, just like going to a spa and get it done correctly, to get the excellent cup of tea as well as just having a good cup.

To begin with a perfect concoction, you need to have the right paraphernalia in immaculate and mint state. The teapot, glass preferably for the flowering tea, the kettle, cups and strainers need to be gently and regularly cleansed using soap and baking soda to prevent stains from developing. Baking soda is great for keeping minerals and other residue from affecting the taste of the tea.

Water is another vital ingredient that could very well affect how your favorite cup of tea would taste. To have the ideal concoction, great water quality is part of the equation. To achieve the desired taste and flavor, tea drinkers may use filtered water or the bottled one as long as it is free from chemicals and chlorine. Preferably do not utilize distilled water to get the desired result.

It is recommended to heat about six ounces of water for a cup of tea. When making a pot of flowering tea however, it is suggested to know the exact amount of water is required to cover up the entire tea ball with sufficient space to have the tea ball unfold completely inside. The required heat and the exact time for steeping for each tea varies, it depends on the variety of tea and how it was prepared. Refer to any instruction you may have on tea for a great result or use this as a general rule:

*Two min. steeping for quality black tea

*Five min. steeping for mixture of black and green tea

*Steeping for green tea - 7 minutes

*Blooming tea - as long as it takes to blossom!

To get a great tasting second cup, do not forget to take out the infuser when it's time so it won't steep anymore which could ruin the flavor and taste.
