newbie using teavana tea with breville one touch
Pls help. Im a newbie teadrinker so just treated myself to the breville one touch and a small stash of teavana. My problem: the label on the teavana tea tells me to steep at a specific temp and time but the presets on my breville wants to do something else. Do far I have not had an acceptable cup of tea. Do I follow teavana brew instructions or the breville’s? Thanks for your guidance pros!
You might try looking up the tea on steepster to see how others have brewed it if it’s in the database. I know I generally start with the tea companies settings and then adjust after tasting it that way – longer steeps, hotter or older temps, sugar etc…
I to had the Breville and could not get a good cup of tea. Hubby bought it for me for XMAS as a huge surprise and I had to return it.
What tea from them are you using? I didn’t recall having a problem using the presets as you can adjust that.
My problem was that the tea didn’t steep correctly and tasted mostly of water. There is a way you can tell it to continuously move up and down slowly while steeping. Tried that and it still tasted like water. Tried more tea in it too – so that wasn’t the problem.
