The balance of natural ingredients in this infusion comes into its own with careful steeping. Here’s how to make the most of Canton Lemongrass and Ginger. As always, steep with care.
|Measure out your water and the blend. With loose leaf, the ideal ratio for Canton Lemongrass and Ginger is 3g per 250ml. Otherwise, one pyramid per cup is perfect.|
|Use fresh filtered water to fill your kettle. Avoid reboiling the water as it changes the composition of the minerals, which in turn will affect the flavour of the tea.|
|Use the right temperature water. For Lemongrass and Ginger, 95° is perfect. You can catch the kettle just before it boils, or a temperature-controlled kettle is ideal.|
|Allow the blend to infuse for 4 minutes. You may prefer it lighter, so experiment with timings to suit your taste. Leaving it longer won’t make it bitter, just stronger with a different flavour balance.
Pour out the tea and if you have any liquor left in the pot, decant it into a jug to ensure the last cup tastes as good as the first.
Try adding more tea if you want it stronger, rather than brewing it longer. That way it will stay true to the original flavour balance of the blend. Be sure to hold onto all the benefits and flavour of Canton Lemongrass and Ginger by storing it in an airtight container away from light.
