How to Brew Perfect Tea


 

Time and Temperature

Whether you prefer your tea bagged or loose, always start with freshly drawn cold water. If using a teapot, warm the inside first with hot water, then pour it out. And of course, make sure your mugs, teapot and kettle are as clean as a whistle.

Tea Bags

Bring the water to boiling point, then dip the tea bag in. Over-boiling the water will cause the tea to taste "flat." Use 1 tea bag per cup, or 1 teaspoon of loose tea per cup (8 oz.). Steep the tea for the required time as indicated on the chart below.

Never judge tea by its color. Color comes quickly, but the flavor of the tea takes a bit longer to develop. Allow for the teabag to reach its maximum steeping time from the chart below to fully extract the flavor. Adjust the amount of tea you use and the steeping time to your taste.

"The best cup of tea is the one you like the most."

*For optimum tea flavor, we recommend you refrain from using a microwave to boil your water.

Loose Tea

Prepare loose tea by placing 1-2 teaspoons of loose tea into a tea strainer. Put the strainer into your cup, then pour properly heated water directly over the leaves. If using a teapot, measure 1-2 teaspoons per 8oz of water.

For a more mild tea flavor, shorten brew time.

For stronger tea flavor, increase brewing time.

While milk and sugar is a matter of personal taste, we find that some of our blends are enhanced with a little added sweetness or creaminess. When adding milk, pour it into the cup before adding your tea. This allows the milk to cool the tea, rather than letting the tea heat the milk.
