Il segreto per un infuso perfetto è una tazza riscaldata. Metti un po’ di acqua calda nella tazza che intendi utilizzare mentre prepari il tè. Svuota la tazza e versa il tè … ecco la formula magica!

Il metodo sul fornello…

– Riscalda l’acqua fredda fino a quando non inizia a bollire.

– Appena l’acqua comincia a bollire, toglila dal fuoco. Mai lasciar bollire l’acqua!

– Svuota la tazza precedentemente riempita di acqua calda e versa l’acqua appena preparata sulla bustina o sulle foglie di rooibos.

– Lascia il rooibos in infusione per 3 – 5 minuti.

-Copri la tazza durante l’infusione perché l’acqua rimanga calda.

– Terminata l’infusione, rimuovi la bustina o filtra le foglie.

– Ora il tuo bel tè rosso è pronto o, come preferisco io, puoi aggiungere un po’ di miele (anche limone se hai l’influenza). Oppure puoi aggiungere dello zucchero o un po’ di latte.

English version of recipe

• Note the secret to a great cup of tea is a warm cup, add hot water to the cup you intend using to keep it warm while you brew the tea, the pour it out as soon as you’ve heated the water for the tea… that’s the magic!

This is a stove top method…

– Heat cold water until it just begins to boil.

– Do not let the water boil, remove it from the heat just as boiling begins

– Empty the mug and pour the water over the rooibos tea bag or leaves.

– Allow the tea to brew until the desired strength, 3 – 5 minutes is usually enough.

– Keep the water hot while brewing tea by covering the pre-heated cup.

– When the brewing is complete, remove the tea bag or pour the tea through a strainer if using rooibos tea leaves.

– you can now drink your lovely red tea as it is, or as i prefer to add honey (lemon too if you have a cold or flu), you can also add sugar or even a few drops of milk.

* It is not uncommon to find South Africans drinking rooibos with milk and sugar, but elsewhere it is usually served plain or slightly sweetened.

*Rooibos tea is normally served hot, but can be refrigerated and served as iced tea on a hot day or for kids.
