tea-steeping guide

WATER Always use the best water possible. If the water tastes good, so will your tea. If that is not the case, then bottled spring water is a nice alternative. Heat the water on the stove top or in an electric kettle to the desired temperature. A microwave oven is not recommended. TEMPERATURE Heating the water to the correct temperature is arguably one of the most important factors in making a great pot of tea. Pouring boiling water on green, white, and oolong tea leaves can result in a very unpleasant brew. In general, use 170°-to -195° water for these delicate tea types, and always refer to the tea purveyor’s packaging for specific instructions. Reserve boiling (212°) water for black and pu-erh teas, as well as herbal and fruit tisanes. TEAPOT If the teapot you…

artful arrangements

1. Natural Elements Incorporate fragrant boughs and colorful fruits, as well as other natural elements, in wintry arrangements. All are perfect for cold-season centerpieces, such as a mix of evergreens, holly berries, pinecones, and, for added drama, roses from a florist and apples and cut pomegranates from the market. 2. Pumpkin Vase Fit a glass or plastic container inside a clean, hollowed-out pumpkin (either miniature or full size), and place the bouquet inside, with stems trimmed to fit. Water-drenched floral foam in the bottom of the container will add anchorage and will keep the arrangement fresh longer. 3. A Rosy Topiary Start with long-stemmed roses, filler flowers of choice, and greenery. Bundle the bouquet tightly with rubber bands or twine. Fit a shallow urn with dampened floral foam, and place the bouquet securely in the…
