Our Red Teas produce their best with freshly boiled water.
Strong and flavourful, they produce their best with water heated to, or near 100°C, 212°F
A brewing time of 2-3 minutes will bring out the best of taste.
2 teaspoons (~4g) of tea will provide 4+ pots of tea with a 400ml, 13oz pot
Our Green teas are shy teas. They must be coaxed and encouraged slowly to bring out their wonderful fresh tastes.
They cannot be rushed.
If the water is too hot, tannins develop, making the tea bitter. Too cool and the delicate aromas are lost.
Be gentle with them by using water between 70°C and 80°C, (140°F and 180°F). You do not need a thermometer. Just boil your water and let it sit for 3-4 minutes. The water will then have cooled to an appropriate temperature to bring out the best of the tea.
Infusing for 2-3 minutes will bring you a wonderful beverage.
2 teaspoons of tea can be infused 3-4 times for equally tasteful tea.
