Leaving aside herbal teas, all teas come from the plant Camellia sinesis predominantly grown in India, Sri Lanka, China, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Africa. Teas are identified by their degree of fermentation. Green tea, for instance, is unfermented, mild to taste and pale in color. Green tea is ceremonial in Japan and rampantly served in Oriental restaurants.

Natural Tea flavor

Green tea has therapeutic values as drinking green tea regularly may minimize the risk of cancer and cardiac ailments. Oolong tea is semi-fermented and the brew is light brown and has a natural tea flavor. Black tea is totally fermented and requires a good deal of attention during the process.

Make tea with pleasant flavor

Many people want to know how to make tea with pleasant flavor:

  • Buy good quality loose tea and avoid tea bags as water flows more easily around the loose tea leaves.
  • Though tea bags are certainly less messy they usually contain some cheap variety of tea, lacking in the essential oils which give tea its flavor.
  • Heat a liter of pure water to boiling point in a tea kettle.
  • It is necessary to use tasteless water free from chlorine and other chemicals and minerals that may affect the flavor of the tea.
  • Deposit the loose tea leaves in a suitable container – preferably made of a lead-free glass or ceramic - and pour the hot water over them.
  • Never boil tea leaves in water. It will spoil the brew. Instead, add the tea leaves to the water once it is off the boil.
  • The quantum of leaves varies depending on the strength of tea you desire, but about 4 tablespoons per quart is a right measure. Add desired sweeteners such as honey and raw sugar.
  • Pour the hot water over the leaves, and allow 4 to 7 minutes time to steep for black teas and 3-5 minutes for green teas. Strain the leaves and pour the tea into a drinking mug or cup.

Essential oil is natural, no chemicals

While grocery stores generally stock and sell a wide variety of flavored teas, some tea lovers prefer to add flavor themselves. Of course, adding essential oils (concentrated plant extracts) on your own, can save you money and give better control of your beverage.

Place tea leaves inside a jar. Add the essential oil and use a wooden spoon to mix thoroughly. Seal the jar and allow the contents to remain for a full day so that the essential oil is able to soak in and fully flavor the tea. Thereafter, brew the tea as you normally would.

As a matter of fact, you can create your own special blends using two or more essential oils - for instance with combinations such as equal parts of mint and jasmine. Check the label of essential oil to make sure it is completely natural and contains no chemicals. True essential oils are pure plant extracts, so they should not include any chemicals.
