Enjoy a Luxury Tea Experience from The Comfort of Your Own Home

We may be working from home again but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your enjoyment for a luxury tea experience.

Here are a few tips from Babingtons Blends Director Chiara Bedini on how to make the perfect cup of tea.

 

Why You Can Enjoy a Better Tasting Cup of Tea at Home

If you think about it, Tea is made with water and dried leaves; sometimes blended with spices, flowers, pieces of fruit and berries. When you are at home you can make sure you are treating your tea properly, getting the best experience.

Unlike in a café or restaurant, when you buy premium tea for you home, you can be assured the ingredients are truly fresh and of the highest quality.

 

Common Tea Making Mistakes

-The tea isn’t of the highest quality; without fresh ingredients you will never experience a delicious and satisfying cup of tea

-Not using fresh water; if the water is constantly being reused all the time, it will affect the overall taste and the benefits of a good cuppa. Always use fresh water…

-Tea can be over brewed rather than made to the strength you enjoy the most

-Tea can be made at the wrong temperature; at home you can control this

-Babingtons Blends teas can be brewed up to 3 times; simply make a cup or pot then add more water up to 3 times

 

How to Make The Perfect Cup of Tea

The process of making tea has for centuries been celebrated across many cultures as a meditative form of mindfulness.

Choose a type of tea to compliment the occasion; this could depend on your mood, the time of day, what you’re eating and the event.

Ensure the water you use is cold when you start heating it and never bring to the boil. Brew accordingly or follow set instructions.

Top Tips

Quantity: 2g for 150 ml of water

Heat Water & Brew:

95° for black teas, white teas and herbal teas

85° for green teas

Brew Tea For:

3-4 minutes black teas and white teas

2-3 minutes for green teas

5-6 minutes for herbal teas

Add milk and or sugar to taste. Milk compliments well with black teas (even scented), sugar goes well with white, green and black teas.

But I suggest you first try them pure... and please don't use lemon – try orange instead. 

Storage:

Keep in a cool, dry and dark place and in an airtight container 

Tea Bags:

1 tea bag for 150 ml
