Thank you to Kohl’s for sponsoring this post on how to make tea the right way. All opinions are my own.
I have always been a tea lover, and I have the tea stash to prove it. My tea collection, until very recently, took up an entire shelf in the pantry. I have since found a more practical way to organize it, but the amount of tea I have is still astounding.
Instead of pouring myself a glass of wine to unwind at the end of the night, I make myself a cup (or three) of tea. It is a nightly ritual – one I very much look forward to.
How to Make Tea the Right Way
A few of my teas have brewing directions on them, but many of them don’t. Did you know that you should brew herbal tea longer than you brew black tea? Yep, it’s true!
I put together this handy dandy little chart to help you know how to make tea the right way. It really makes a difference when you brew your cup of tea for the right amount of time.
How to Make Tea Brewing Easier
I have also found that having an electric tea kettle makes enjoying the perfect cup of tea so much easier! Since I like to take some time to unwind after the girls are asleep, the last thing I want is a noisy tea kettle waking them up!
I love my Electric Tea Kettle. It heats water in just minutes with no loud whistling noise, so I can enjoy my cup of tea without waking my babies. So I get my “me” time and they get their beauty sleep.
It’s also so much easier to clean than a standard tea kettle. I go through so many regular tea kettles because I can’t clean them well. My last one started leaking, so I replaced it with the Krups Electric Tea Kettle.
I love how you can easily pop open the lid to clean this stainless steel Tea Kettle. It makes tea taste so much better when it comes from a clean kettle!
Making the Move
Making the move to tea has made a big difference in how I sleep and feel. I love how small changes like drinking more tea, and taking the time to really enjoy it, can make such a difference.
