  1、The ratio of tea and water
 
  When making tea, brewing tea should be in good proportion to the amount of tea and water. Most family tea brewing is done by experience. The ratio of the amount of tea and boiling water should also be determined at your discretion.
 
  When brewing black tea in a pot, at least the amount of tea in a pot should be in 5 grams, if the tea leaves are too little, even if less water is brewed, it will not be able to give full play to the fragrant taste of black tea.

  The ratio of tea to water dosage will also vary from person to person.
 
  If you are a heavy tea drinker, you can increase the amount of tea and make a cup of strong tea soup; if you are not used to drinking tea, you can put less tea leaves and make a cup of fresh and mellow tea soup.
 
  2、The choice of tea ware
 
  In fact, black tea is the best inclusive tea. It can be brewed in any kind of glassware, ceramic bowl or alabaster pot, and it can show its excellent side.
 
  The owner feels that this is perhaps one of the reasons why it has become so popular around the world. It is suggested that tea lovers can also experiment more in this aspect of utensils.

  3、Control of water temperature
 
  Usually, the water temperature for brewing black tea is 90℃, and the tea must be simmered with a lid immediately after brewing, in order to maintain the fragrance of black tea quality.
 
  However, the water temperature has a certain relationship with the quality of the tea leaves. If the tea leaves are of good quality, the high water temperature will not affect the taste and brewability of the black tea after brewing. For example, for our Zheng Shan Xiao Zhu, the water temperature reaches 100℃, but its soup color and brewing times are not affected at all.
 
  4、Brewing time
 
  According to the owner's experience of making black tea, most black teas do not need to be steeped. Because most black tea has a long fermentation time, so the tea broth will soon be tasty, and it will be astringent when it is bored.
 
  However, when a good black tea is steeped for one minute after ten bubbles, you can still enjoy the flavor of the black tea and the aroma of the tea will not be overdrawn.

  Tea leaves in a variety of active ingredients in the leaching time is not the same, the first brewing of tea, tea soluble substances can be leached 50% to 55%; the second brewing can be leached about 30%, the third brewing, can be leached about 10%, the fourth brewing, can only be leached 2% to 3%, so most of the work of black tea strips of tea, it is best to brew only 2 to 3 times.
