  • 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.

A great tea to enjoy after a meal. 

This blend of ginger root and a sturdy Sencha style green tea makes a classic combo. Add a bit of honey and its a fantastic winter tea to ward off a cold. 

The green tea has a touch of astringency, common in teas, but its tamed by the sharp and spicy ginger root. The ginger is not overpowering at all, but is a rather nice counter note to the green tea.

After a meal the ginger provides a nice digestive aid while the green tea is good for cleansing the palate for fresh breath and neutralizing acid which can hurt your teeth.   

Try it iced.
