How to Make the Perfect Cup of Tea

As much as I love a good cup of coffee, to me there is nothing more relaxing than the perfect cup of tea. For me, tea is for those times I want to unwind and relax, which has honestly been a lot lately.
So how do you make your perfect cup of tea?
- First start with boiling the water to just the right temperature. You will want to boil your water to just about 96 degrees for a black tea.
- You will you want to follow the tea’s packaging directions to ensure you steep your tea for the optimal time. 2 minutes is usually sufficient.
- Be sure to remove your tea bag as soon as it is done steeping. Leaving it in too long will leave your tea tasting very bitter.
- Add milk and honey to your liking.
One of the most important steps in the perfect cup of tea is picking out the right type of tea you will drink! A quality tea will taste the best. That is why I have chosen to enjoy Pure Leaf® bagged teas, which are available at Wegmans. Pure Leaf® tea is the perfect pick me up before and/or after a hectic day.
Pure Leaf® is made of long leaf teas, that are simply picked, rolled, and expertly crafted, made with real fruit pieces, petals and herbs. Pure Leaf® believes the best things in life are real, which is why all Pure Leaf® teas are simply made from real tea leaves, picked at their freshest, and purposefully crafted to deliver a genuine tea experience. Their process is also simple and authentic. The quality tea leaves go through a four-step process — simply picked, rolled, dried and blended — for an exceptional tea taste. ure Leaf® tea leaves are grown at some of the finest-quality tea estates in India, Kenya, Indonesia and Sri Lanka committed to sustainability.
My favorite Pure Leaf® is the Black Tea with Vanilla. This long-leaf Assam black tea is perfectly balanced with Madagascan vanilla beans to create a tea-forward taste with a delectable hint of vanilla. Madagascan vanilla is well-known for its indulgent taste that lingers on your palate with a long, luscious finish.
