Steps to make your perfect cup of everyday luxury

Making your cup of tea can be an intimate, personal ritual that is calming and gives you a moment to pause, reflect and take a break from a stressful day. Here are a few steps that will lead you to a blissed out luxury tea experience.

Step 1

Get your favourite teacup or mug

All of us have our go-to cup or mug that we just love. Make sure it is sparkling clean and dry and ready to hold that perfect cup of everyday luxury.

Step 2

Use freshly sourced cold water either from the filter or the tap (only if you have no other choice)

Always start with cold, fresh water to boil. Filtered water is always best but may not always be possible. Either way, ensure that it’s fresh. Tea loves oxygen as it helps the flavour develop. Most of us are guilty of re-boiling water that’s in our kettle. This makes the water lose its oxygen and results in a flat, boring cup of tea.

Step 3

Add freshly boiled water to your tea bag in your cup

Even if you are in a hurry, do make sure the water has reached the boiling point. This is very important as the tea does not brew flawlessly when this has not been reached.

Step 4

Lightly dunk the black tea bag into the teapot

A big faux pas that most of us make when brewing tea, is when we dunk the tea bag and then squeeze it. Squeezing the tea bag makes the tea bitter. Do not touch the tea bag once it’s in the cup or teapot, until the optimal time of brewing is over.

Step 5

Allow the tea bag to brew for 2 minutes - if you like it light, or 3-4 mins if you prefer a stronger cup

Enjoy the calming peace of watching the dark gold of the tea as it seeps into and infuses the water. Do not be deceived by the colour though. It’s the actual brewing period that will intensify the flavor and the aroma.

Step 6

Remove the tea bag

Remember not to squeeze it!

Step 7

Add 15-20ml of milk

You can always add less or more milk to suit your preference, but 15-20ml of milk will bring out the authentic taste of our pure Ceylon tea.

Step 8

Add sugar to your preference

It’s best not to over-sweeten your tea as it can take away from its natural soothing flavour. The less sugar, the more distinct the pure flavour of our Truly Ceylon tea.

Step 9

Wait 6 minutes before consumption for your delicious cup of liquid joy to reach its optimum temperature of 140 F/60 C

Some of us prefer to sip scalding hot tea, while some prefer to have it cooler. 6 minutes, however, is the optimal time to bring it to the most drinkable level for you to savour the taste of the lush and misty hills of Ceylon.

Step 10

Now sip that perfect cup of Truly Ceylon tea!

Experience a multisensory journey into Ceylon, inhale the sublime aroma of the tea as the smoke wafts up and gently caresses your face. Let the pure flavor envelope and invigorate your palette as each sip warms up your very soul!
