The perfect cup of tea is only a moment away

Follow these tips to enjoy a perfect hot cup of tea.

  • Use 1 teaspoon of loose tea per cup
  • Use fresh filtered water
    If possible, use fresh spring water. When a spring source is not available an acceptable alternative is filtered water.

    Why?
    Stale or reboiled water has less oxygen to assist with infusing the tea. As well, heated chlorine can be quite strong and will alter the taste of your tea.

  • Use appropriate temperature water
    For green and white tea: 160°F/71°C
    For all others: boiling

    Why?
    If water is too hot for green tea, the flavor becomes unbalanced—it tastes bitter or stringent.
