We love to sit down and share a pot of tea, whether it's just tea for two or with our kids on a Saturday morning - which usually ends up being two pots of tea! But when it's a hectic rush to get ready for work or to get the kids organised how do you enjoy a cup of Emubob Tea quickly?
We've been asked this question a few times so we thought we'd share our tips to help you get the most out of your tea when you're stretched for time.
Just use the kettle to boil the water!
Traditionally sticky-chai is prepared on the stove top, adding tea and milk together. But, to make it a bit easier just use boiled water from the kettle and add milk if desired.
Use a tea-ball infuser.
Simply place a small amount of tea in the infuser (don't forget the tea leaves expand so don't overfill the infuser - simply add enough to fill half of the infuser should work!) and place in a cup of boiled water. Infuse until your desired strength is reached - you can even get other tasks done while you wait!
You do have time to make a pot of tea and even take some with you!
In the morning, simply boil your kettle and fill up the cup/s you will use. If you're making tea for two or using a bigger travel cup, this technique is perfect. Place the desired amount of tea into the teapot (whether infused or not) and add the water from the cup/s you'll be using - this way you'll get the exact amount of water into the teapot without any wastage. Let stand until desired strength is reached, pour into your cup/s, add milk if desired and enjoy!
It is also possible to use the above technique when you want to make a second brew. For instance, if you have time to make a cup of tea at home but also want to take a travel cup with you, make the first brew to fill your cup and a second brew to fill your travel cup! But be sure to empty the water out so the tea isn't left brewing!
Happy Brewing Everyone!
