People use many different ways to brew and drink tea. Among those, there are numerous national traditions: the Japanese tea ceremony, the Chinese art of Gong-Fu Cha, the Russian and English tea party, etc. Apart from that, you can find modifications of tea traditions and a great variety of specific brewing recipes.
We believe that before mastering any exotic nuances, one must first learn how to properly brew regular everyday tea. With tea-making being one of the skills we learn as children, still some people can make a tea that tastes good, while others can’t.
When it comes to brewing herbal tea, there are several options you might use.
- 1st option – add 1 teaspoon of herbal tea to your favorite black tea, pour hot water, and infuse for 5 minutes.
- 2nd option – infuse the herbal blend and tea in separate pots to avoid over-extraction of the tea leaves. The thing is, the tea brewing time varies from a few seconds to 5 minutes, whereas for the herbs, the longer the better. Once that’s done, mix the infusions together in a mug.

Fruit and berry tea
It is best to pour boiling water over frozen berries and mash them afterwards.
As for dried fruits, it is recommended to infuse them in a thermos over a long period of time, preferably with boiling water as well. Or, if you want to make a drink without waiting a few hours to infuse, try crushing the dried berries before brewing, or buy ready-made Siberian Treasure freeze-dried wild berries.
There are plenty of ways to use lemon (as well as other members of the citrus family): add it to an already brewed drink by squeezing out the juice or putting it in big slices.
Drink tea and be well!!!
