Our tea master Stefan Feldbusch provides the following preparation tips for your enjoyable tea moments:
Besides the tea itself, good quality water (i.e. low in hardness and chlorine content) and the correct brewing time are deciding factors when it comes to making a good cup of tea.
Always use fresh, boiling water when brewing tea. That said, the water should not boil for too long, as this causes too much oxygen to escape.
Tea tastes better when it is strong. According to your preference, use at least one tea bag for every cup of fruit tea and at least three for a pot – depending on its size.
Depending on the type you choose, different kinds of tea need to brew for different lengths of time, so you can enjoy their full flavour. In addition, always follow the respective instructions on the tea packaging!
MILFORD brewing time:
Tea should always be protected from moisture and heat as well as against certain strong flavours, such as other teas and other odours like spices.
Black teas such as fine Darjeeling tea, a top-quality tea from the best tea gardens, easily takes on strong foreign flavours and loses its own delicate floral aromas and subtle flavours in the process.
Ideally, store your tea in an airtight container. This allows the tea to retain its unique flavour.
