National Tea Day: 5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Favorite Brew
Get a Better Appreciation of Tea on Its Special Day
On April 21st, tea lovers get to proclaim their love for their favorite beverage with pride. It’s National Tea Day — a celebration of the flavor, variety, and versatility of this centuries-old drink.
While tea finds its roots in Asia and England, Americans are no laggards when it comes to tea appreciation. You should not be surprised by the growing list of tea varieties and blends available in your local supermarket. Coffee shops also offer different tea flavors to cater to the growing passion for the beverage.
Tea sales in the United States in 2020 reached a whopping $13.2 billion! It’s expected to grow even more in the coming years as more people get to know about the amazing health benefits of the beverage.
To gain a better appreciation of tea on its special day, here are five special brewing tips so you can enjoy it even more.
1. Try spring water.
While it’s convenient to use tap water to brew your tea, experts say tap water ruins the natural flavors of the beverage. Distilled water is also not a great option. To activate the perfect blend, use bottled spring water. You can also adjust the water’s temperature when brewing your tea.
2. Experiment with the ratio.
While you can follow instructions on brewing your tea, you can always experiment with the water and leaf ratio to see which suits your taste better. Tea is a versatile drink whose brewing can be adjusted to your preference.
3. Add milk, honey, or lemon.
You’d be surprised how different your tea would taste if you add milk, lemon, or honey. Milk is usually added to English breakfast tea while lemon and honey can complement the more bitter tea blends.
4. Turn it into a latte.
Almost any type of tea can be used as a base for a tea latte. Just add steamed frothed milk and sweetener to the tea base and voila! You have yourself a simple beverage without having to run to your local cafe.
5. Cold-brew your tea.
Instead of brewing hot tea, mix it up by pouring 1-1.5 liters of lukewarm water over 1 to 2 spoonfuls of tea leaves. Keep it in the fridge overnight. When you taste the beverage the following day, you’d be surprised to know that there’s no more bitterness to it.
