Just a coffee connaiseurs like fresh, just ground coffee beans to prepare themselves a nice cup of coffee, here are some good tips to prepare a good cup of tea! 

Use whole leaves. “Whole leaves retain their essential oils and flavors better than torn ones.” Give the leaves “a gentle rinse” with cold spring water. That not only removes residue but “primes them for maximum release of flavor and aroma.”

Mind the temperature. Heat kettle water to a boil, but don’t overboil: That will deoxygenate the water, “resulting in a flat-tasting final cup.” While your tea is steeping, keeping the water at a consistent temperature is “crucial,” so a double-walled teapot is recommended. The temperature should be just below boiling for black teas, but cooler for green teas.

Know your steeping time. Since optimal steeping times “vary widely”—from one to eight minutes—ask the salespeople at your tea shop for guidance on the leaves you pick out.

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
