Making Tea

The Victor Crew found a video that shows “How You’ve Been Making Tea Wrong Your Entire Life” from the BBC.

The takeaways are:

Don’t use styrofoam cups – they hold onto the flavor
Don’t use hard water – it can cause scum on top of the tea; flavors react with the minerals
Steep the teabag for five minutes – it gives time for the caffeine and antioxidants to come out
