  • Keep your loose leaf tea fresh

    While our triple-lined bags can keep your tea fresh for 2-3 months before it starts to loose its flavor and aroma, tea should be properly stored in a air-tight container, and preferably one which keeps out sunlight.  These simple, modern tea containers can keep your loose leaf tea fresh for a year or more.  If you're looking for more reasons to tin your teas, check out the blog post dedicated to just that:

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
