Preparation of teas
We present three ways of preparation, depending on the mixture of teas:
  • TEAS WITH MILK: Varieties of Sunrise in Garnata y pakistani tea. These mixtures lend themselves more to their elaboration Milky, rescued from tradition, since the fruit composition does not enter their mixtures, which would take away the aroma and flavor of the tea.
  • Su preparation It is as follows: One part of water and three parts of milk. The tea ratio is one teaspoon of coffee and about 200 ml. of liquid per person. Milk of any kind can be used, including vegetable milk, although the original recipe is cow's milk, or goat's milk. Dry tea is put in the teapot. The milk and water are then heated, but separately. When the water has boiled, pour it into the kettle, cover it for about 30 seconds, and then add the hot milk. Cover again and wait about 2 minutes. It is then served in small quantities. If sugar is required, it is incorporated into the glass, and never inside the teapot.
  • MILKLESS TES: The rest of varieties
  • Proportion: 150ml of water and a teaspoon of tea coffee per person.
  • Preparation: bring the water to a boil. When it is hot, pour into the teapot where the dry tea will already be, in the appropriate proportion. Wait about 2 minutes for the infusion to be made, and it is served in small portions. You can add sugar once it is served.
  • Moruno tea: This variety admits the sugar inside the teapot. Once the water is incorporated, the sugar is added to the teapot, one teaspoon per person of shaved coffee. While the infusion is being made, stir it from time to time so that the sugar does not agglutinate in the bottom of the teapot.
  • COLD TES: They are only made with varieties of teas that do not contain milk. They are made with three-quarters of the normal water. Once the infusion has been made, previously crushed ice is added to the teapot. They are usually extremely refreshing, and the varieties with green tea also admit sprigs of mint or fresh mint. It gives them a very good flavor. The varieties of Fruits are especially appreciated by the younger ones, since they do not carry the strong flavor of the ceylan tea, black tea o the green, and in its variety of granita they are very pleasant to taste.Normally, the tea is usually accompanied by sweet dates, almonds and different desserts made from dried fruits.
I am a dreamer and in my dreams I believe that a better world is possible, that no one knows more than anyone, we all learn from everyone. I love gastronomy, numbers, teaching and sharing all the little I know, because by sharing I also learn. "Let's all go together from foundation to success"
