Understanding Microground Tea

Before we dive into the brewing process, let's understand what sets microground tea apart. This finely ground tea allows you to consume the entirety of the leaf, which means you're not missing out on any of the health benefits or the full-bodied taste that tea has to offer. Microground tea isn't steeped and removed like traditional tea leaves or bags; instead, it dissolves in water, ensuring that every drop is infused with its richness.

 

Brewing Your Microground Tea: A Step-by-Step Guide

Choose Your Microground Tea: Begin by selecting from Genuine Tea's Microground Tea Collection. Whether you fancy a robust black tea or a delicate green, each tea type offers a unique profile.


Measure Your Tea: Using a microground tea spoon, measure out the recommended amount of tea. Typically, one to two teaspoons is perfect for a standard-sized cup.


Heat Your Water: For most microground teas, heat water until just before boiling – around 90°C. This temperature allows the tea to dissolve without scalding the delicate leaves.


Whisk It Up: Add the microground tea to your cup and pour in a small amount of hot water. Whisk vigorously with a bamboo or small metal whisk to create a smooth paste. This step prevents clumps and ensures even distribution of the tea.


Add More Water or Milk: Once your tea paste is smooth, add the rest of the water, or if you prefer a creamier drink, your choice of milk. Whisk again until frothy and fully combined.


Customize Your Cup: Microground tea is versatile – enjoy it plain or sweeten it with honey or sugar. Add lemon to a black tea for a citrusy zest or a sprinkle of cinnamon to a chai blend for a warm spice.


Enjoy Immediately: Microground tea is designed to be consumed soon after brewing to enjoy its full flavour and health benefits.

     

    Tips for the Perfect Brew

    • Water temperature is key. Cooler water is best for green and white teas to prevent bitterness.
    • Adjust the amount of microground tea to your taste preference. More tea will yield a stronger, more potent cup.
    • Invest in a good quality whisk to ensure your microground tea is silky and smooth.

     

    Conclusion:

    Brewing microground tea is both an art and a science, an easy yet sophisticated way to enjoy the full essence of tea leaves. With this guide and Genuine Tea's Microground Tea Collection, you're well on your way to mastering the perfect cup. Embrace the ease and excellence of microground tea – your taste buds (and body) will thank you.
