How to Brew the Perfect Cup of Tea

Updated: Jun 2, 2023



You deserve a better cup of tea. In fact, you deserve the perfect cup of tea. Choosing your favourite Talent Herb tea bag is an excellent start. Simply follow these helpful steps to make every cup the perfect cup.


Tip #1 - Time and Temperature


Whether you prefer your tea bagged or loose, always start with freshly drawn cold water. If using a teapot, warm the inside first with hot water, then pour it out. And, of course, make sure your mugs, teapot and kettle are clean as a whistle.


Tip #2 -Tea Bags


oxygen to be reduced, making the tea taste 'flat'. Use 1 tea bag per cup, or 1 teaspoon of loose tea per cup (6 oz.). Steep the tea for the required time as indicated on the chart to the right.

Never judge tea by its colour. Colour comes more quickly, but flavour takes a bit longer to develop. Allow the correct steeping time to fully extract the best flavour. Adjust the amount of tea you use and the steeping time to your taste. "The best cup of tea is the one you like the most."


"For optimum tea flavour, we recommend you refrain from using a microwave to boil your water" – Health specialist

Loose Tea Prepare loose tea by placing 1-2 teaspoons of loose tea into a tea strainer, put the strainer into your cup, then pour properly heated water directly over the leaves. If using a teapot, measure 1-2 teaspoons per 8oz of water. Recommended Brew Times Black3-5 mins Chai3-5 mins

While milk and sugar is a matter of personal taste, we find that some of our blends are enhanced with a little added sweetness or creaminess. When adding milk, pour it into the cup before adding your tea. This allows the milk to cool the tea, rather than letting the tea heat the milk.
