Drinking tea has long been a unique cultural feature in many parts of the world. For the British, having tea and sipping a piece of cake every afternoon becomes a quintessential culture.
The idea of making tea is simply to drop the tea into the water and wait, but according to scientists, most of us drink tea every day in the wrong way.
A regular afternoon tea.
Dr. Stuart Farrimond - tea production science expert shared this as well as telling you how to make a perfect cup of tea in the Inside the Factory program on BBC Two.
Specifically, according to Dr. Farrimond, there are four golden rules that you should "pocket" right away for a cup of fine tea.
The first thing that Farrimond wanted to emphasize was never drinking tea made from a sponge plastic cup.
"It is Styrofoam foamed plastic in the foam plastic cup that absorbs flavor molecules, thereby reducing the flavor of tea," he said.
And the fact that you sip a cup of tea with this kind of cup will really make the tea taste disappear. Instead, you should use a porcelain cup, glass will be better.
In addition, he emphasized, you need to focus on choosing the color of the cup because it also makes a difference for tea flavor . Specifically, you will feel the tea tastes sweeter if you enjoy tea from a red, pink cup - rather than a white, blue cup.

The next tip that Dr. Farrimond would like to mention is to filter the tea water to remove impurities if your living area is full of hard water (natural water that contains many Ca2 + and Mg2 + ions). .
Farrimond added: "What happens when you use hard water to make tea? Some compounds in flavor will react with calcium and form deposits for tea, and they will kill the flavor. tea again ".
The most important thing is that you must always wait for the tea to be ready for 5 minutes.
Water purification removes some of the calcium and magnesium in tea and makes the water more pure.
According to Dr. Farrimond, the most important thing is that you must always wait for the embryo to go out for 5 minutes. This time will help caffeine content and antioxidants in tea embryos. Remember, tea contains an excellent antioxidant compound and absorb it through each cup of tea.
Longer brewed tea will contain antioxidants twice as much as brewed tea for 30 seconds.
A study has shown that longer brewed tea will contain antioxidants twice as much when tea is mixed in just 30 seconds.
MC in the program - Cherry Healey has been tasting a cup of tea made according to 4 golden rules and compared to a cup of brewed tea in just 30 seconds. She agreed that Farrimond's method really worked.
Healey shared: " The tea is richer and tastier. It makes my taste buds awake. It's really a perfect cup of tea."
