How To Brew the Perfect Cup of Tea

Brewing the Perfect Cup of Green or Black Tea

Often I hear people say they find tea to be bitter (especially green tea). While tea quality and freshness plays a definite role in taste, boiling water makes green tea bitter - it should NEVER be steeped in freshly-boiled water! I always let my water cool for at least 5 minutes before boiling before pouring over green tea.

Here are instructions guaranteed to make a perfect cup of black or green tea every time

Brewing Instructions for Black Tea:

For a cup of hot tea, use one rounded teaspoon of tea leaves. (To make iced tea, use 1-1/2 teaspoons per cup to compensate for ice dilution.) Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and steep for 4 to 5 minutes. Always cover your tea when steeping--the leaves will unfurl properly when covered. Remove tea leaves and enjoy!

Try this with our Oriental Spice Black Tea or our Mango Tea

 

Brewing Instructions for Green Tea:

For a cup of hot tea, use one rounded teaspoon of tea leaves. (To make iced tea, use 1-1/2 teaspoons per cup to compensate for ice dilution.) Pour water (boiled and allowed to cool for one to five minutes) over the tea leaves and steep for 2 to 3 minutes. Always cover your tea when steeping--the leaves will unfurl properly when covered. Remove tea leaves and enjoy!

Thy this with our Paradise Blend Green Tea, our Pomegranate Green Tea or our Moroccan Mint Green Tea
