In search of the perfect cup of tea

A nice cup of tea
If you make tea with hard water, you could notice a film on top. This is due to the Calcium Hydroxide present in hard water reacting with the flavanoids in the tea. It is always preferable to make tea with soft water, as this will not adversely affect the flavour of the tea. In fact, some believe that water quality is as crucial as the quality of the tea when attempting to make the perfect cuppa!
