5 Mistakes to Avoid When Brewing with Aura Tea

Brewing the perfect cup of Aura Tea is an art that blends precision and care.
Here at Aura we have a wide range of functional herbal teas designed to potentially support various aspects of health. Ensuring that you brew them correctly could maximise their potential benefits and enhance your tea-drinking experience. Are you making any of these mistakes when brewing tea?

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Brewing Tea:

Here are common mistakes to avoid so that you make the perfect cuppa:

1. Using Boiling Water 

One of the most common errors is using boiling water. While it might seem logical to use the hottest water possible, boiling water can actually scorch the delicate herbs in your Aura Tea, leading to a less pleasant taste and reduced potential nutritional benefits. Instead, aim for water that is just below boiling, around 90°C. This temperature preserves the integrity of the herbs and allows for optimal extraction of flavours and nutrients.

2. Over-Steeping the Tea

Timing is crucial when it comes to steeping tea. Over-steeping can cause your tea to become bitter and overly strong, masking the subtle flavours that make Aura Teas so enjoyable. Each blend has a recommended steeping time, generally between 3-5 minutes. Stick to these guidelines to ensure a balanced, flavourful cup every time.

3. Neglecting Water Quality 

The quality of water used for brewing is often overlooked but it plays a significant role in the taste and quality of your tea. Tap water, especially if it is heavily chlorinated or contains high mineral content, can alter the delicate balance of flavours in Aura Tea. For the best results, use filtered or spring water. This simple change can make a substantial difference, bringing out the pure, intended flavours of the tea blend.

4. Ignoring Proper Storage

How you store your tea can significantly impact its freshness and potency. Exposing tea to light, air, and moisture can degrade its quality over time. To keep your Aura Tea at its best, store it in a cool, dark place in an airtight container. This protects the herbs and preserves the tea's flavour and potential health benefits, ensuring that every cup is as fresh as the first.

5. Using a Dirty Teapot

A clean teapot is essential for brewing a perfect cup of tea. Residue from previous brews can accumulate and affect the flavour of your tea, leading to an unpleasant mix of tastes. Make it a habit to thoroughly clean your teapot after each use. This will ensure that each new pot of Aura Tea is pure and untainted by old flavours, allowing you to fully enjoy the unique characteristics of each blend.
