The two types of teas that most people use are loose leaf and packaged tea. These are the types of teas that you get in the shops and most people are not aware that they are drinking tea. There are teas that are loose in the shops, but they don’t taste right so they’re not sold. But then there are other teas that are packed and sold, and people drink them to get the same effect, but don’t taste as good as they should. This is one reason why you need to know the tea that is being sold to you before you buy it.
So how can you tell if a tea is loose or packaged? When you get a pack, they usually include a tea bag with the teas. It’s easy to tell that this is not loose tea because the loose leafs have quite a bit of the buds sticking out and the packaged tea has the leaves together but not quite as much.
When you’re buying a tea, then the tea pack is the best way to see the tea. Make sure that the tea is loose when you buy it. The reason for this is that the tea leaves are quite fragile and once they are packed tightly, then they won’t be able to absorb much flavour. As well, if they are packaged too tightly then the tea will dry out very quickly, and you could find that you can’t make a cup of tea. That’s not very enjoyable either.
There are a few teas that you can drink without tea bags, such as green tea. Green tea has more tannin than other types of tea, so it will not have as much of a robust flavour, but it is very healthy for your health. You can drink it hot or cold. This is often used in the morning when you wake up and can enjoy the taste of the green tea and get the caffeine rush without having to wait until lunch time.
Tea leaves are also quite fragile, especially when you are preparing them. Make sure that you use a good quality tea strainer so that you don’t spill the tea on the floor or onto the table or into the kitchen. The leaves will break if they are spilled. If they are not kept dry, they will also become brittle and lose their flavour.
There are teas that are very acidic, so you want to take care of them. The easiest thing to do when you brew your tea is to add a little water to make up to 2 litres. of water. Once you have boiled the tea, add half the water to the tea and then add another third and add the lemon juice after you have poured the tea over the top of the water.
Don’t drink your tea straight from the pot, instead put the tea leaves into the strainer and leave them overnight. In the morning, take them out of the pot and put them into the strainer. Then strain again and allow the tea to settle, again pour the lemon juice over and leave the tea to sit in the strainer to settle. It’s easy to see that there is no left over tea after this second stage.
