Tea in a Tea Cup

Who doesn’t enjoy a cup of good tea, to begin a day or to refresh themselves during a day? Everyone does enjoy it. Tea comes in many varieties – green, black, herbal, with milk, without milk, with sugar, without etc – the list is endless. Making Tea in a Tea Cup is a relatively simple task. Today I will be showing you how to make 2 cups of tea in 2 Tea Cups. This contains both milk and sugar. Let’s begin.

Depending on how many cups of tea you are planning to make, you have to take those many cups of water first. Am making 2 cups of tea, therefore, taking 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Remember not to use already boiled water as already boiled water will have less percentage of oxygen in it which will not give the desired taste to the tea. It’s like this – the more oxygenated is your water, the better will the tea taste. So go for fresh filtered water bubbling with oxygen.

Next step is to boil this water. So keep the saucepan on the stove and allow it to boil. Keep it covered to reduce the wastage of gas.

In the meantime, take the tea cups and place a tea bag, one in each of the tea cups. I have used Taj Mahal tea bags here.

Now you can add the required sugar into the tea cups.

By this time, the water would have boiled. Turn the gas off and remove the saucepan from the stove.

Pour the boiled water equally into the tea cups. Pour the water over the tea bags and see the water change colour gradually.

Keep the tea cups covered for a while. This will allow the tea bag contents to diffuse into the water.

Different tea bags will have different brewing time. So depending on the type of tea you are making and also depending on the strength that you like, you can keep the tea bags in the water for longer or shorter periods. After 3 minutes or when you notice that you have got the desired strength for the tea, remove the tea bags using a teaspoon. You can either throw away the tea bags or reuse it once more if you like, for another tea.

Add the milk powder into the tea cups. I have used Everyday milk powder.

Stir the milk powder well. And there you have the perfect Tea in a Tea Cup ready to drink.

Serve hot with biscuits or cake.
