How to Brew Tea ?

Finding the perfect taste experience is part of the craft. These are general guidelines, so feel free to experiment.

  • For an 8oz cup of tea, use one level teaspoon for fine teas. For fuller, fluffier teas, use one rounded, heaping tablespoon.
  • For a stronger cup of tea, you may use more tea leaves, but it is advised that you stick within the recommended steeping times to avoid bitterness from over-steeping.
  • Most teas can be re-steeped multiple times within a few hours of the initial infusion. The science of tea tasting is to do what tastes right. Learn and gauge according to your taste buds. Below is a guideline to get you on the right track. Investing in a level hot water dispenser would be a great tool for your journey into tea.
