A Little Tea Experiment

02 Jun 2011

Tea drinking peoples of the internets! Here’s a little experiment I’d like you try next time you make a cuppa with a tea bag. If you’re strictly loose-leaf, then this test isn’t going to be for you, but for the rest of us, give it a go and see if you think it tastes any better.

First boil a kettle of fresh water, so that it is has oxygen. Reboiled water loses it’s oxygen and therefore doesn’t brew properly. Then, here’s the bit I want you to test (although you may already do this part)…

Dribble the boiling water onto the tea bag from at least a foot away. The smaller the amount of water the better. This should then make the brew very bubbly – mixing in more oxygen, and hopefully improving the brew.

Next time you make a cuppa, have a go and let me know via Twitter if you think it made any difference!
