When making things like tea or coffee in our own homes, it can be as straightforward or complicated as you want.
Maybe you’re like me and enjoy something simple and easy, that takes absolutely no thought so that my first-in-the-morning, zombie-like self can operate it with ease.
Or maybe you like something elaborate like brewing your water, crushing fresh herbs, grabbing a strainer or filter, and watching the perfect cup of tea form right before your eyes.
Well whatever your brewing choice, we’ve got you covered.
I’m going to show you two different ways to brew the perfect cup of tea, whether you’re a zombie or elaborate tea drinker.
Before I get into it, I want to let you know that we do have an email newsletter for you to sign up. Not only will you be the first to know about new promo codes, deals, products, and any changes to the website..
But we also have exclusive content just for our subscribers. Exclusive giveaways, a chance to test out and review a new product we’re testing, and more!
I promise there’s no spam, no random emails, no junk you won’t find valuable.
Alright, now let’s get into those brewing styles. If you’re more of a visual learner, I’ve made a video demonstrating the two. You can find it here.
- With a Tea Ball Strainer
This is the simple method. Just a few simple steps and you’re on your way to sipping some delicious tea while scrolling Twitter.
First, you’re going to fill up your kettle, or choice of water-warming device, and let that water get hot.
Next, take your tea ball strainer, your blend of choice, and fill that sucker right on up. If you’re like “Imani! I don’t have a tea ball strainer!!” do not worry.
With each order you place, whether it’s one item or ten, you will get a complimentary stainless steel tea ball strainer. And if by chance you break or lose it, you can purchase another one for just $5 here.
Now, once your water has boiled, pour your desired amount into your mug and insert your tea ball strainer.
You can stir it up like you would with sugar, or you can steep it like a regular tea bag. You can also just place it in there and let it sit if you’re one of those people who like to brew boiling hot water and let it cool to the right temperature. (I do that a lot, but not by choice.)
You can do this for about 1 to 2 minutes, or longer for a much richer flavor.
Take it out, throw the used herbs into compost, and enjoy!
Now for all of your elaborate tea drinkers.
- Brewing The Leaves With The Water
The first step for this way is to grab your tea blend of choice, scoop out one or two tablespoons & put it into your kettle with the water.
While that’s boiling, you’re going to find an open ended mesh strainer. It can be as big or little as you want, just be sure it’ll fit over your mug.
Once your tea is ready, place your strainer over your cup, and pour the tea in.
The open ended mesh strainer will catch all of the tea leaves and herbs that were in the pot, allowing just the tea into your mug.
Now you can sit back and enjoy your amazing cup of tea while watching the sunrise and making a very extensive to-do list for the day ahead.
Just make sure one of the items on your list is to clean your kettle and wash out any leaves that were left behind.
That’s all there is to it. Both versions of brewing tea are easy and simple and don’t take long. Whether you’re having a cup first thing in the morning, or last thing before bed, there’s a time for tea.
You can find a collection of amazing tea blends on our website as well as other tea accessories.
