Knowing how to get a great cup of tea every time you brew a cup as well as what types of tea are the best options for you will ensure that you make the most of your experience drinking this wonderful beverage.

Not only can tea help give you a boost of energy when you’re feeling sluggish during the day but I find that it can help to change your mood and make you feel a lot better.

After you have brewed your tea, you will want to make sure that you really enjoy drinking it.

You Can Change Your Mood

One thing that I really love about drinking tea is that you can actually influence your mood and how you feel by choosing the right type of tea. Many people struggle with feeling tired during the day but an energizing tea will help improve your mood and give you the motivation that you really need to make it through the day.

Not only does this Hey Girl Tea option help to increase your energy and your focus when you feel as though you’re dragging during a long day but it also helps to boost your metabolism. This is great for people who feel as if they need a little extra help tackling their to-do lists and want to use tea to help them get it all done.

It Makes You Feel Better

Not only can tea help give you a boost of energy when you’re feeling sluggish during the day but I find that it can help to change your mood and make you feel a lot better. I love using tea when I’m stressed as it can easily help me calm down and change my outlook. This Kava Stress Relief Yogi Tea is a great choice for anyone who is stressed as it relies on kava and carob pods for a rich, relaxing flavor and feeling.

Choosing the right tea for you can be tricky but I think that you can make it easier by choosing a variety box so you can try many different kinds of tea. This option from Taylors of Harrogate offers eight different kinds of tea for you to easily find the one that is the right fit for you.

Choose the Right Pot

One of the most important things to consider when brewing tea is the pot that you are going to use. I recommend using one with very thick walls so that you don’t have to worry about a lot of heat loss, which can affect your tea. This Sweese teapot is not only very cute and durable but it also has a steel infuser for brewing loose-leaf tea.

While choosing between tea bags and loose-leaf tea is a matter of personal preference, I think that everyone should try loose-leaf tea. It often is fresher and has a deeper flavor. While there’s nothing wrong with bags, switching over to loose-leaf will give you more control over your tea and allow you to even make your own blends.

Add your tea to your pot with hot but not boiling water. Allow the tea to steep for around three minutes if it is green tea and around five if it is black tea. This prevents your tea from tasting bitter. Make sure that you never squeeze out your bag in your pot as this can negatively impact the flavor of your tea.

Enjoy Drinking it

After you have brewed your tea, you will want to make sure that you really enjoy drinking it. I love having a teacup set aside that is just for me to use for tea as it allows me to slow down and really enjoy my beverage. Antique teacups are a great option but so is this gorgeous Lenox cup and saucer set. The saucer can hold your spoon so that you don’t drip if you choose to stir in sugar or milk.

If you need to take your tea on the go, then you need to look for a container designed to brew and protect your tea. I love this double-wall vacuum mug because not only is it perfectly insulated, which means that your tea won’t get cold, but it has an infuser strainer. This allows you to use loose-leaf tea without worrying about how you are going to strain your drink when you want to enjoy it.

While it’s very easy to accidentally let your tea get cold when drinking it, I do not recommend putting it in the microwave to warm it back up. Doing so can change the flavor of the tea and easily make it bitter, which means that it will be much less enjoyable when you’re drinking it.

Don’t Get Messy

It’s easy to get messy when brewing tea at home, especially if you are using bags or an infuser. Rather than having to stay by the trash so that you can drop your used bag in the garbage when your tea is done, make sure that you have a tea bag holder on hand.

These teapot-shaped holders are the perfect size for putting your tea bag when you have removed it from your tea. Because you don’t want to squeeze out your bag, there is likely to be some tea that drips from the bag. Your tea bag holder will be able to easily catch this excess tea so that you don’t make a mess, making it easy for you to sit and enjoy your drink.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to consider when brewing a cup of tea. I think that not only do you need to take into consideration how to brew the best cup of tea so that you can really enjoy your drink but you also need to choose the right tea option for you. It’s easy to be overwhelmed when shopping for tea but with a little research and experimentation, I think that you can easily find the best tea for you and will be able to brew a perfect cup each time.
