Tea Brewing Guide

  • The right way to drink tea is the way you like. Adjust to your taste to make it your own. Add milk, and sugar, or let your imagination run wild. No wrong answers here.

  • Use clean, filtered water (if available).

  • The amount of tea brewed will determine its strength. Don’t brew longer, use more or less tea.

  • Allow your tea leaves room to expand(in a tea bag or strainer). It wants to absorb water, so let it.

  • Surface area is important to brewing tea. Smaller leaves will brew faster and stronger.

  • If brewing a tea concentrate for later use, allow the tea to cool to room temperature before refrigeration.

  • Does your tea taste bitter, metallic, or astringent? You have most likely over-steeped or used too hot of water. Cool it down next time, and keep a timer handy.

  • We’re not sure if repeatedly dunking your tea bag in your cup helps at all, but it sure is nice to feel like you’re contributing.

  • Remember your tea while it’s cooling...we know...we’ve all been there.

  • Iced tea? Use an extra teaspoon of tea. Brew it with half the water you would normally use and pour over it over ice.
