Brewing Our Blooming Tea Balls
1 x Blooming Tea Ball
Place one blooming or flowering tea ball in a clear medium to large sized glass tea pot or tempered glass pitcher (from 2-4 cup teapot).
Prepare the water: If you know what kind of tea is in the ball (white, green, or black) follow the guidelines in how to make tea when determining how hot to make the water. For example, if it is predominantly green tea, the water should not be boiling (70°C – 80°C is best) when poured onto the tea. If the tea is black, bring the water to a full boil.
Steep the tea for at least 10 minutes (longer for a darker, more robust tea). Taste the tea as it steeps to see if it has reached a desired strength. The darker the tea the stronger it is. Pour all the tea into cups. If you’re not going to drink it all, pour it into another teapot where it can stay warm. Leaving the hot water in contact with the tea for too long can adversely affect the taste. Re-steep the tea. You may be able to do this 2-3 times, depending on how much tea you made, and how long you steeped the tea the first time. Remember that after a few re-steepings, the flavor will not be as bold as before in other pots.
WARNING – Make sure that the glass container you use is capable of handling boiling water. Some glass containers will crack or even shatter when boiling water is poured in.
