BREWING A CUP OF TEA

1.While the water is boiling in the kettle, the tea pot should be heated

2. When the pot is warmed, add Swastik Gold Leaves

3. A rule of thumb is two and a half grams of black tea per cup, or a Tea Bag per cup: the equivalent of one rounded tea spoon for whole or broken leaves and slightly less for crushed leaves

4. The leaves should be left for a few moments in the warm teapot, to release their full aroma. Barely simmering water should then be poured in.

5. Water should never reach boiling point, since boiling destroys the quality of both the water and the tea leaves

6. A whole leaf black tea should be steeped for about 5 minutes; broken-leaf tea 3 minutes, and crushed leaves 2 minutes. 

7. The tea leaves/bag should be removed after steeping.

8. A built-in strainer or a Tea bag holder would be convenient.

9. Stir well and serve immediately. Check for Milk & Sugar as per individual taste. Add both after the infusion is ready.

10. Your cup of Swastik Gold tea is ready to drink.
