FACT: THERE IS A CERTAIN WAY TO POUR TEA ACCORDING TO SCIENTISTS…

I bet you did not know that there is a scientific way to pour tea to get the best taste?

Well, according to News 18 the way you filter your tea has a big impact on its taste.

Apparently, the speed with which you pour your tea from the kettle into a cup can have a significant impact on its flavour.

After the scientific way of pouring tea was introduced, many found that they had been filtering their tea incorrectly all their lives.

The proper way to pour it is to pour tea from the kettle directly into the cup, that way not a single drop of tea will be lost.

Using a ceramic or glass kettle you should pour the tea as quickly as possible as the chances of tea falling to the bottom of the cup are reduced doing it this way.

According to Twinings Tea, it is customary for the person doing the hosting to pour the tea out, and for the teapot to be left on the table with the spout facing the person who poured.

If sitting at a table, the proper manner to drink tea is to raise the teacup, leave the saucer on the table, and place the cup back on the saucer between sips. It’s considered rude to look anywhere but into the cup whilst sipping tea, and absolutely no slurping!

A few more absolute no-no’s are; unfortunately, is it inappropriate to dunk one’s biscuits in tea! (of course, this only applies when in polite company!), and also, no using tea to wash down your food!

So, there you go a little bit on how to pour your tea and the etiquette you should follow after pouring it. Any other comments on how to pour and/or drink your tea would be greatly appreciated.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
