HOW TO STEEP OR BREW TEA
Brewing or steeping tea is the act of placing tea leaves into water and allowing the tea to infuse. In steeping tea it depends on the type of tea that you are steeping. There are a couple of steps you need to follow to get the best tasting tea.
HOW TO PROPERLY STORE TEA
Once you have purchased your quality tea you must properly store it or it will go stale, like any other food product. In fact, finer lose leave teas often have fewer or no artificial preservatives and can breakdown quickly. Tea’s three worst enemies are air, light, and moisture. But don’t worry keeping your tea stored properly can make it last as long as a year, and this is easy to do.
The most popular ways to store tea is in Tea Tin, Tea Caddy and Tea Chest. You can find tea tins in hundreds of styles and Tea Chest and tea caddies come in many different materials.
Tea tins are the most popular way to store loose tea once opened from their air tight container. A proper tin has an air tight seal and is light proof. Tins are your best defense against the aging effects of air and light. You may ask why you should protect your tea from sunlight and indoor lighting. The reason is that both sunlight and indoor lighting contain harmful Ultra Violet rays. Ultra Violet light can break down the molecules in tea, stripping color and flavor over time. Keeping your teas in the dark is preferred in order to preserve the flavor and appearance of the tea.
Air contains many things that can harm your tea like moisture, air pollutants, orders, and oxygen. Air pollutants and odors can contaminate your tea with odors from food, or other harmful chemicals that are both natural and manmade that can cause chemical reactions. Oxygen combines with a wide variety of organic molecules, altering them through oxidization which breaks down molecules in tea and changes the flavor.
Since tea leaves are dried, moisture in the air will cause your tea to become moist allowing odors to infuse into the tea. Moisture will also enhance the effect of oxidation and will allow mold and other organisms to grow on your tea that can ruin it. This is why it is important to keep the interior of the tin or chest moisture free to retain the optimum flavor. Do not store different types of teas in the same container. It you store different types and flavors of teas in the same tin or chest you run the risk of contaminating the flavors.
Remember it does not matter if you use a tea tin, tea chest, or tea caddy. The important thing to remember in picking your container is to ensure that it is air and light tight. You can use individual or multiple compartment containers as long as each compartment is air and light tight.
