“It’s Tea Time!” or Basic Rules Of Brewing

We drink tea during different occasions in life  – with dessert, while meeting a friend, having a family time or just for making yourself warm and cosy. Sometimes we don’t get the full taste of this drink due to the fact that we defy the rules of brewing. So here are some basic things which might be intresting for you to get the best out of your tea-time 🙂

Don’t forget, tea can exhilarate and soothe. Remember the three magic numbers: 2-5-6

-After 2 minutes the tea will give calming effect.
-After 5 minutes – energizing effect.
-After 6 minutes – just a tasty drink.
Truly useful qualities of tea appear only after 15 minutes of brewing. However, after 7-8 hours, drink loses all benefits and even becomes harmful for the body.
