As any Brit knows, making a proper cup of tea is an art form. From the choice of tea leaves to the temperature of the water, there are seemingly endless ways to customise your perfect cuppa. But what about pouring it? It may not seem like much, but if you want to enjoy your tea to the fullest and make sure that every sip is satisfying, then you need to make sure you’re pouring it correctly. Here’s how to go about it.

Start With a Clean Cup

The first step in pouring a proper cup of tea is ensuring that your mug or teacup is clean. A dirty mug can negatively affect the taste of your tea and ruin the flavour experience altogether. So before you pour anything into your mug, give it a good rinse with warm water and a mild detergent or cleaning solution. Make sure all residue is gone before continuing!

Slowly Pour Your Tea

Once your mug is clean, you can begin pouring your freshly brewed tea into it. Start by slowly tilting the teapot so that the stream of liquid flows directly into the centre of your mug. This will help ensure that all of the flavours are incorporated evenly as you pour. Take care not to pour too quickly—you don’t want to overfill or spill any tea in the process! A gentle stream should do just fine.

Keep Your Teapot Upright After Pouring

Once you’ve finished pouring out all of your tea, be sure to keep your teapot upright until all liquid has drained out completely (usually this takes around 10-15 seconds). If there’s still liquid left in the pot after pouring, then this liquid won’t be as strong as what you just poured out—and therefore won’t taste as good either. So be patient and wait for all remaining liquid to drip out before turning off the heat and storing away your teapot for later use!

Pouring out a perfect cup of tea doesn’t have to be hard work! All it takes is a few simple steps and some patience before you can sit back and enjoy one of Britain's favourite hot beverages in style. By keeping these tips in mind when brewing up a nice cuppa for yourself or friends, you can ensure that every sip will be full-flavoured and enjoyable—no matter how many cups you decide to make each day! So why not give these instructions a try today? You might just find yourself surprised by just how satisfying a properly poured cup of tea can really be!
