Tea Tastes Differently When
You Make It Differently.
Tea is a special
drink that gives refreshment instantly. Tea is some thing special as it tastes
differently when you get it from different estates every time. You know, all
the popular estates give teas in their brands, but they taste slightly
different every time.
As there are changes
in weather conditions, manuring and fertilizing, cultural practices, pest and
disease control, harvesting and processing etc with or with out knowledge, the
tea characters also change. Tea lovers will easily find the change in color,
taste and flavor too.
But to your
surprise, you could see taste variations within a small quantity of tea from a

TEA IN HOT WATER:
In the traditional
way make the tea by just boiling 200 ml of water. Put a measured quantity of a

Whether you taste it
raw or with sugar alone or with sugar and milk, the taste is fine. Keep the
lingering taste in your memory.
This is generally
practiced in homes.
TEA IN HOT DILUTED MILK AND SUGAR:

of water, 200 ml of milk, a teaspoonful of tea dust and 6 tea spoonful of sugar
in a saucepan and boil all the ingredients at a time and allow boiling for 2
minutes. Now filter the tea and taste it. It is nice and different from the
first kind of making. All the measured quantities are same as the first, but the
making process is slightly different. The taste is a little more here.
This is practiced in
canteens and functions where bulk tea is required for serving a good number of
persons at a time.
TEA IN FILTER MEDIA:
Now take tea dust in
a sieve and pour the boiling water through the tea dusts; get the tea decoction
in a bowl containing hot milk and sugar as measured earlier. The tea is called
a filtered tea, though the ingredients are the very same. The filtered tea is
more colorful and shows the taste differently.
This is the practice
adopted in most tea shops of small and big sizes; but they are too busy in
delivering tea to one or two or groups of persons in a short time. They make
