Transcript of The Process of Making the Perfect Cup of Tea

How to make the Perfect cup of tea Alex Batchelor,
Astrid Blee,
Lauren Downing
and Leah Edwards By " " Hello, I'm a mad scientist and I'm here to teach you how to make the perfect cup of tea First boil the kettle - use about 250ml of water per cup to save energy. Make sure to use fresh water that hasn't already been preboiled because the lack of oxygen can give your tea a strange taste! " " While the kettle is boiling, fill up your cup until it is about one quarter full and put it in the microwave for about a minute until it is nice and toasty. " " This means that the boiling water won't lose as much heat when it goes into the cup as if the cup was cold. This gives the tea a higher infusion temperature which is important to get the optimum taste. " " Now you need to select which type of milk to use. Many people use semi-skimmed or even skimmed milk because they think it's healthier. But a nice latte man once told me that actually it makes little difference and whole milk could be better as the proteins are easier to digest, which is good 'cos I think it's by far the nicest! " " Now you need to stir that tea (being careful not to spill it obviously!) as this helps infusion for a better taste. " " Then you need to add the teabag. Some people like to use two for extra strength, but I'd reccommend one! " " Now, some people leave the spoon in their cuppa 'to help it cool down quicker'... ... but actually it makes very little difference to the rate at which the tea cools! Because most spoons are made from stainless steel, which is a poor heat conductor, it doesn't really matter whether you leave the spoon in or not. So next... take out the spoon! " " " " " " Now you need to leave your teabag in the cup to steep, or infuse, for approximately 2 and a half minutes... " " And finally, obviously after removing the teabag, sit down and enjoy your cuppa by a hot fire! (Biscuits complement the perfect cup of tea nicely and all! ;D) " " So there you have it... " " The Perfect
Cup of
Tea An even better way of making tea would to steep the tea seperately in a teapot which has been heated up in the same way as the teacup, then add the tea to the warm teacup with milk already in. " " " " However this is impractical for many people who make their tea at work; in a survey I carried out only 37% of people used a teapot at least once in a period of 3 months! " " Once your kettle has boiled, fill your warm teacup with boiling water. " " Athough this is contraversial we have decided to put the milk in first because it is less likely to get denatured by the boiling water than if you add it in afterwards. Denatured milk is most disgusting because the protein molecules lose their shape- it tastes just like tnat disgusting UHT milk!
