Darjeeling tea is definitely something very special! Produced in the foothills of the Himalayas, this blend is one of its kinds. Special processing is required for this special blend. The refined processing of Darjeeling blends produces a sophisticated flavor which is the ‘favorite’ to all tea drinkers. This Tea Requires Only What is The Best
- Steeping Darjeeling tea needs more care than any other teas. The compounds producing the tantalizing flavor and aroma typical to Darjeeling blends can easily get ruined by addition of any kind of impurity.
- Do not use detergent for cleaning the cup or pot into which you want to pour Darjeeling brew. Instead wipe off the vessel’s inner side with damp, clean cloth and remove any kind of residue.
- Water is the next important component in brewing Darjeeling tea. You should always start with cold and filtered water. Tap water of good quality also works the same. You should never use hot or distilled straight from tap because it will ruin the quality of the brew.
- Next important thing is the temperature of steeping. In order to extract the best flavor from a cup of Darjeeling brew, you should use water below its boiling point. What you have to do is just boil the kettle and then turn off the flame. Let the kettle stay for one moment.
- Bring the water to boil.
- Rinse the pot and cup with warm water.
- Use 2 teaspoons of tea leaves for 8 ounce cup.
- Put hot water over these leaves and steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
