Step 1

Picture of a Running Tap

Run the tap a little so the water’s nicely aerated and only boil it once to keep the oxygen level up.     Interesting Fact: Oxygen in water helps flavor!     (Black Teas – 96oC | 205 F , Green teas – 70oC | 158 F) – brewing green tea at lower temperatures will ensure that its sweet and complex flavors will not be overpowered by the bitter-tasting flavors

Pop a tea bag into your cup, pour over the hot water and stir briefly.

Step 3

Wait patiently until your Elephantea does its magic!   Tea needs time to unlock all its flavour, so give it 2-3 minutes (average brew) to do its thing. 1-2 minutes gives you a light brew which will have a mild flavour, 2-3 minutes gives you a slightly stronger flavour, 3-5 minutes gives a strong flavour and also the colour will be much deeper This is a perfect time to munch a sneaky biscuit or daydream about holidays. Interesting Fact: Pour it in a porcelain cup which will keep your tea super-tasty.

Step 4

Before removing the tea bag, gently squeeze it against the side of the mug.   Just the once, mind – if you really squeeze the tea bag, it will release more of the tea taste that includes tannins which will give you a slightly bitter taste.
