We all have that friend. The one who can't start their day without a cup of tea, or ends every meal with a pot of their favourite tea. They're always talking about the latest tea they've tried, and how it's so much better than whatever you're drinking. You might call them a tea snob.

But what is a tea snob, really? Is it someone who only drinks the finest teas, from the most exclusive brands? Or is it someone who is simply passionate about tea, and loves to share their knowledge with others?

At its core, being a tea snob is all about having a discriminating taste in tea. It's not necessarily about being better than anyone else, but rather about knowing what you like and seeking out the best of the best.

So, if you're looking to up your tea game, here are a few tips from a bona fide tea snob:

  1. Find fresh tea:. The fresher the tea. The better it is.

  2. Seek out quality brands. Not all teas are created equal. There are many factors that go into making a great cup of tea, from the type of tea leaves used to the way they are processed. Do some research and find a brand that you trust to deliver quality tea.

  3. Pay attention to brewing times. Brewing tea for too long can make it bitter, while brewing it for too short will result in a weak cup of tea. Experiment and find the sweet spot for each type of tea you drink.

  4. Be mindful of water temperature. This is especially important when brewing green or white teas, which can easily become overcooked if the water is too hot. Use a thermometer to get the water just right.

  5. Know when to add milk and sugar. This is a personal preference, but some teas are better with a little milk and sugar added, while others are best enjoyed plain. Taste test different combinations to see what you like best.

What is the best way to brew tea?

Each type of tea has a different brewing time and recommended water temperature.

We recommend using 220ml of Spring water per serving.
