The average brewing time is 25 seconds, which is disgusting
Bring your kettle to the boil, but don’t let it switch off by itself. The key is having oxygen in the water, and every second it boils, you’re pumping out the oxygen. I always recommend pouring out any residual water in the kettle and starting afresh.
Jiggle or no jiggle? This whole jiggling thing is a complete waste of time. It washes off the colour which fools you into thinking that the tea’s ready. But colour doesn’t mean flavour, and the flavour is still in the bag.
How many cups do you drink a day? I consider anything less than 9 cups to be a totally unsatisfying teadrinking day. The unofficial health benefit of tea is it’s a social drink. When I get home, we sit down and put on a pot. Tea facilitates conversation.
