How to brew ruby black 紅玉紅茶的泡法

A1322404613

These days, I dranked quite a few of ruby black #18 from many tea farmers in Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan.  The teas grown in different villages have different aromas and flavor even from the same plantation region of Sun Moon Lake.  Guess it’s why the French puts so much importantance on the “Terrior” of wine region.  I will write another article to talk about this later.  What we will talk about today is simply how to brew a excellent ruby tea.

這幾天在日月潭茶農處喝了許多款不同的紅玉,我必須說即使同樣在日月潭,在不同山頭生產的紅茶味道就是不一樣,這或許就是法國人所強調的風土條件的重要性,喔!重點不在這,這篇主要是介紹怎麼泡出好喝的紅玉紅茶。我會再另外寫一篇關於紅玉的介紹與品評心得。

One day, I made a pot of ruby for my family to drink.  I am not trying to be exagerated but the taste was really great.  Even later when I went back to the tea farmer who sold me the tea and asked him to brew it with the same grade tea,  he could not even reach the standard of my brew.  The following is my method. You are welcome to try if interested.  But rememebr you might want to make some adjustment according to your preferences.  Afterall, brewing tea is an arr of some sort.

話說有一天,我泡了一壺紅玉給家人喝 ,不是我在臭蓋,但味道真的棒極了。即使後來我回到賣我紅茶的茶廠,請主人泡同樣等級的紅玉,也達不到這樣的味道。以下是我的泡法,各位有興趣可以方法試試看,並依據自己的喜好調整紅茶與水的比率,以及沖泡的時間,說到底泡茶也是一門藝術。

Tea pot is ordinary glass, the water is reverse osmosis water.

Tea Weight: 5 grams

Water: 300cc (water and tea ratio is about one sixty)

Water temperature: 95 degrees

Brewing time: 2 ½ minutes

茶具用普通的玻璃壺,水是逆滲透水。

紅茶重量:5公克

水:300cc (水與紅茶比率大概是1:60)

水溫:95度

沖泡時間:2分半鐘

Many beginners in tea have problem with how to determine the amount of tea leaf put in a pot.  Personally, I will have an electronic scale ready on the table.  But if you do not want do this every time you are having tea.  You could choose to use a tea spun instead.  Remember, a teaspoon of crushed type Ceylon black tea may have 6 grams, while a tea spun of fluffy ruby black tea may only have 3 grams.    Hope everyone can brew out of the tea that best fits their taste.

對了,很多初學者在泡茶會有一個疑問就是怎麼抓投茶量?我個人是比較龜毛,準備了一個電子秤放在桌上,各位若是不想每次喝茶都要先放電子秤量重量,也可以專門用一個固定的茶匙,記好一茶匙的茶有多少重量也可以,記得茶葉種類不同,一茶匙的重量也不一樣,例如一茶匙錫蘭碎型紅茶可能有6克,而較屬於條索型且蓬鬆的紅玉紅茶,一茶匙可能只有3克,大家可以試試看,希望大家都能泡出最符合自己口味的紅茶。
