The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Making the Perfect Cup of Tea

Category: Drinks  |  Permalink

Published: Thursday, June 2, 2011

MAKING TEA IN THIS SIMPLE WAY WILL ENSURE A GREAT TASTING CUP

1. Use a top quality loose-leaf tea

2. Make sure the tea has been stored properly, ideally in a re-sealable airtight bag or tin. This is particularly important for teas with more delicate flavours, such as green and white teas.

3. Use a small teapot. Small teapots allow you to control the infusion of the tea much better than larger teapots so we would recommend using one that is no larger than 300ml. With top quality loose tea you can infuse the tea more than once for multiple servings.

4. Be generous with the leaf. It is important to be generous with the tea and make sure you decide on the amount to use by weight and not volume. Use around 5g for a 300ml teapot.

5. Ensure the correct water temperature and quality. Green teas, white teas and yellow teas taste best when infused with 60C-80C water. Black teas, oolongs and pu-erh taste best with near boiling water. It is best to use the highest quality water you can find - filtered or bottled water is fine.

6. Infusion time. Infuse the tea for 3 minutes and make sure that you pour all of the infusion into a cup that is the same size or larger than the teapot. It's very important not to let the tea stew by leaving it in the teapot, as it will become bitter.

Making tea in this simple way will ensure a great tasting cup but you can always experiment with larger servings of tea and shorter infusions to find the right taste for you.
