Tea – a drink consumed in households and workplaces throughout the world – was first discovered purely by accident. While many myths and legends surround the discovery of tea, one story stands out most accurately. According to the tale the history of tea originates in the year 2737 B.C. during the reign of the Chinese emperor Chen Nung. The Emperor was popularly known as the “Divine Healer” as he was responsible for identifying the medical properties of many herbs. One day while the Emperor was on a journey he stopped for a drink of water. While he boiled the water to purify it, a few leaves from a nearby tea tree fell into the imperial pot. The scent and flavour emanating from the tea leaves was to the Emperor’s liking – and with that first cup the humble tea leaf made its royal debut.
Making tea involves more than just immersing a tea bag in a cup of hot water. There’s a finer art to bringing out the subtle flavours of this refreshing drink. The secret lies in the brewing. We’ll show you how to transform the simple act of drinking tea into an extraordinary experience.
Brewing Better Tea
Bring your water to the boil and pour it immediately into a cup or teapot.
Use one teabag or one teaspoon of tea per cup. If you are using a teapot include one extra teaspoon.
Leave the tea to brew for 3 or 4 minutes. Once the tea has been infused to the required colour and taste, strain the tea to separate the brewed leaves from the infusion. If you are using a teabag remove it from the cup or squeeze the bag with a teaspoon if you prefer a stronger cup of tea.
Serve with a dash of milk or a slice of lime. You may also add sugar or a sweetener to taste.
Follow the instructions given above for hot tea.
Once the tea is brewed do not add milk or sugar.
Leave the brew to cool to room temperature before chilling or serving over cubes of ice.
Add sugar syrup to taste.
