  • 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.

Love my tea! Always look forward to the lovely notes and samples.

And we're so happy, you're happy!

This is probably my favorite herbal tea, and it comes with great service whether I go to the store and buy tea or order it online. Hibiscus and ginger are two of my favorite flavors and are combined so well with these other fruits and herbs.

You have put smiles on the faces of everyone here at Good Life Tea. We're so happy you are happy!
Really delightful

I have always been one to gravitate towards ginger teas, but can sometimes have too much of that ginger bite. With this blend the ginger is balanced perfectly with a medley of fruit and makes for a great iced tea.

Coincidentally, your review arrived as I was sipping some Ginger's Island and I have to agree. It's a great blend of ginger and fruit. Thank you!
