Of course, I like tea! I'm just not crazy about it though plus I'm actually picky when it comes to the way it taste! Wherever I go, I'm always drinking tea. Whether I'm at friends', at the restaurants, and even at McDonald's! I'm not going to turn down when it's offered to me. You know? I usually just go for water but if it is offer to me. Then I'll take it. :)
If you like tea, you'll also agree that every tea are different in tastes and flavors! Riiiiight?
Okay let me cut to the chase... for a while, I have struggled making my tea taste good. I usually make it too sweet and sometimes it just taste... blah. Bland or whatnot. FINALLY... I found the right amount of measurements to please my own taste buds!
This is what I accidently came across when making tea the way I like it.
I will do the following below:
I fill the pot with about 5 cups of water (Okay, so I had to take out my pot and look at the tea stain to figured out this measurement. Ha!) and throw in 3 tea bags. Yes, 3 tea bags. I cut off the string and just let the tea bags freely move into the pot. When the water comes to a boil, I like to let the tea bags boil for a few more seconds before turning off the stove. Like about 15-35 seconds. Then I remove the pot from the heat and let the tea bags sit in the hot water for 30 minutes. Yes, 30 minutes. On the side, I have added water and 1 cup of sugar in the pitcher. Next, pour the tea into the pitcher (remove tea bags). Last, I pour additional water until it is measured at 3 Liter. If you are wondering, my pitcher has a measurement on it. That's how I measure how much water to add.
I think I am bad at explaining. To make it short and simple... I put:
3 tea bags boiled in about 5 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
pour water until you make a 3 Liter Tea = Sandra's homemade tea!!
(okay it's not homemade but it's made from my home plus it's also the way I like it)
