  • 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.

Licorice Black Tea is the perfect antidote to today’s stressful lifestyles, but it takes this recuperative ritual one step further. Know for its healing properties, licorice over the millennia has been used as a tonic for digestive and respiratory ailments. As far back as Mesopotamia and the ancient Egyptian Empire, licorice root was used to inspire and soothe and was, purportedly, the favored root of the Pharaohs and was revered for these unique and coveted properties.

Now you can enjoy this noble black tea, hailing from Sri Lanka and prized throughout history for its health benefits, as a delightful tonic or simply a spicy yet calming balm for the daily grind. Equally soothing to the psyche and the throat, Licorice Black Tea is smooth, aromatic, comforting, rejuvenating and is held in such esteem as to allow history to be its testament. If this aromatic black tea boasting intense coppery tones with a hint of anise and ancient restorative properties was fit for the Pharaohs, it is sure to help you conquer your morning, provide a meditative break in your afternoon, or perfectly and smoothly round off your evening. After all, you deserve it.
