Brewing tea in Europe: about a teaspoon of leaves per cup of tea and brewing it for a few minutes with water that has boiled freshly.
The Earl Grey Tea brew is strong, crisp and full of flavor, with a hint of citrus.
HOW TO DO IT BETTER
Earl Grey tea black leaves are scented with flavours of Bergamot oil. When brewing aromatic qualities are in the air.
The main advantage of a tea bag compared to loose tea is convenience. The bags do not cause clutter or soaking, leaving loose tea leaves, so you can clean the teapot quickly and easily.
When brewing any type of tea, soft water is ideal because it allows you to fully release the flavors and aromas hidden in the tea. Using hard water may mask the delicate taste of tea due to the presence of minerals. These minerals activate flavonoids that can change the taste and color of tea.
For brewing black tea, soft water is better to use. If black tea is brewed with hard water the color becomes darker.The tea tastes flat and lacks flavor.
After boiling, it's worth waiting a while before pouring the water.
In terms of proportions of tea, the golden rule is "one teaspoon per person, plus one for the pot".
Remembering this makes it easier to avoid making the tea too weak.
Earl grey can be composed of various tea leaves. We recommend those blends based on Ceylon tea, which even though strong, cannot be bitter.
If you add some milk to strong Earl grey tea, you will get english style tea. We also recommend Earl grey with lemon.
