Tea Brewing Tips

Click on each tea in the menu to the left to find specific brewing information for each selection

Brewing Black Teas

water should always be at a rolling boil (~180-212° F)

Use 1 tsp of tea leaves per 6 oz. water (standard teacup). A 24 oz two-person teapot would use 4 tsp of tea.

Steep according to tea directions – even 10-15 seconds can change the flavor profile of your tea. Black teas can become bitter if over-steeped, much of the flavors of the tea getting lost in the tannins. Drain tea strainer (never squeeze it to extract all the water! This releases bitter flavors into the tea), serve, and enjoy!

Brewing Green Teas

water should always be at a simmer (~180-190° F). If you don’t have a thermometer, bring water to a boil then allow to sit 4-5 minutes before using.

Use 1 tsp of tea leaves per 6 oz. water (standard teacup). A 24 oz two-person teapot would use 4 tsp of tea.

Steep according to tea directions – even 10-15 seconds can change the flavor profile of your tea. Green teas can become very ‘grassy’ if brewed incorrectly, so make sure to watch your timer! Drain tea strainer (never squeeze it to extract all the water! This releases bitter flavors into the tea), serve, and enjoy!
