Best ways of making tea

The best water to use

Always use pure and soft water. The best tea is prepared with water which is low on minerals. Tapwater is actually not that suitable for making a good cup of tea. In general tap water contains too many additional flavours, which contaminate the natural taste of the tea . Always use a water which is low on calcium and has neutral or light acidity (PH) The best waters to make tea with are Spa (Belgium) , Montille (France), Glaciar (Portugal) and Mont Roucous (France).There are special installations on the market to filtrate tapwater and make it suitable for brewing the perfect cuppa.

Best temperature

Stick to the temperatures mentioned on the label. If you don't have a cooker with which you can fic the temperature or a thermometer, just keep your eyes on the bubbles while cooking. The water has reached 70 degrees celcius when it forms tiny bubbles on the bottom, at 80 degrees the water forms "eyes", at 90 the bubbles rise in strings to the surface and you know what water looks like at 100 degrees.

Quantity and best infusion time

The quantity of tea to use and the infusion time mentioned on the label are simply our good advise. If you want to infuse the leaves longer, by all means feel free to do so. The most important thing is ofcourse your own personal taste.
