(Black Teas – 96oC | 205 F , Green teas – 70oC | 158 F) – brewing green tea at lower temperatures will ensure that its sweet and complex flavors will not be overpowered by the bitter-tasting flavors
Pop a tea bag into your cup, pour over the hot water and stir briefly.
Be Careful! Depending on the type of tea you’re brewing, the water may be as hot as 205 Degrees!
Tea needs time to unlock all its flavor, so give it 2-3 minutes (average brew) to do its thing.
Before removing the tea bag, gently squeeze it against the side of the mug.
Just the once, mind – if you really squeeze the tea bag, it will release more of the tea taste that includes tannins which will give you a slightly bitter taste.
Sit back. Enjoy your cup of tea, knowing you have helped a tuskers wellbeing!

Then pour the tea into a tall glass that is filled with ice. Squeeze a slice of lemon into the tea and add a sprig of mint to the top. If you like to add sugar, start by stirring in half a teaspoon and add more to taste.

Be Careful! Steamed milk will be very hot!
Put an elephantea bag into the steaming milk, typically, four to six minutes will give it a nice, strong flavor.

Stir well. To create a great latte froth, use a frother or a small whisk to give it some air.
Serve it warm and sip through the creamy goodness.
