Tips to Get the Perfect Tea or Coffee Brew at Home


Use freshly ground coffee

The difference between fresh grinds or pre-ground coffee can either make or break the taste. Coffee goes stale quite quickly when it’s exposed to light and oxygen. We suggest buying whole bean coffee and grinding it right before you’re about to brew.

Use proper ratios

One key factor to remember when brewing coffee is the ratio. For a real boost to your morning, try a 2:6 coffee to water ratio (that’s 2 tbsp for 6 fl oz/170 mL). This is the general ratio for a strong coffee.

However, if this isn’t strong enough to your liking, you can up the ratio to 2.5:6. On the other hand, if 2:6 is too strong for you, try 1.5:6 and gradually work your way up.

Use the best water option

Use the best water you can. Do not use tap water. You will notice an unpleasant taste in your cup if you do. Try to avoid any kind of water with minerals in it if you can.


Use loose leaf tea

Tea leaves need room to expand for full flavour extraction while steeping. Tea bags have limited space and prevent this from happening. According to new research, tea bags also contain billions of microplastics and particles that leak into your cup.

Loose leaf tea is not only tastier, it’s still easy to brew with a small infuser and infuser teapot.

Don’t use distilled water

Tea experts will tell you how your source of water is critical for making tea. Spring water or filtered tap water are best for making tea.

Mineral-free and distilled water tend to produce a dull and flat tasting tea, while mineral water contains too many minerals that can alter the taste when in contact with compounds in the leaves.

Cover your cup with something while steeping

If you’re letting your tea steep in your mug, find a small plate or container to cover the top. Covering your tea ensures that the heat and oils from the tea leaves stay in your cup.
