Water for Tea August 22 2015

Many Tea Masters will say: 

'Your tea will only be as good as your water.' So begin by bringing filtered or spring water to a boil, (or for most of us, just good old plain tap water),  and then allow it to cool for a moment to different temperatures depending on the type of tea, such as Black Tea, Green Tea, Oolong and so on. Place  tea or teabag into the cup or pot and pour hot water onto it. Let it stand for 3 to 6 minutes, or until you find the right taste for your palate, depending on the strength you like. Add whatever you prefer, milk, sugar, honey, lemon etc. Now sit back, and enjoy!
