Basic Tea Brewing Instructions

Steeping time presented below is for using 1tsp of tealeaves to make an 8oz cup of tea. We recommend boiling fresh cold water. Boiling water should be poured onto the tealeaves instead of doing the reverse of dropping the tealeaves into the water. Tealeaves should be quickly rinsed with hot water before steeping.

Black Tea: Heat water until boiling, 212 degrees Fahrenheit, steep for 3.0 minutes

Green Tea: Heat water until steam rises, 180 degrees Fahrenheit, steep for 2.0 to 2.5 minutes

Oolong Tea: Heat water until steaming briskly, 200 degrees Fahrenheit, steep for 1.5 to 2 minutes
