Brewing the Perfect Cup of Tea

There are as many different instructions available as to how to brew a good cup of tea as there are tea types in the world! It seems that everyone has their own way to brew the tea just the way that they like it. What we want to offer here is our own personal experience as to what makes a good cup of brewed tea. As you grow more familiar with your own taste and with your specific tea favorites, you will learn to perfect brewing tea for your own tastes. In the meantime, here is a starting point that will guarantee that you get a good cup of tea every time!

  1. Place one teaspoon of leaves per cup of water in an infusing device or strainer.
  2. Warm your empty teapot or cup with boiling water.
  3. Bring fresh, cold water to a rolling boil. Pour the boiling water over tea. For Green and White Teas, use slightly cooler water (170 - 180F, 77 - 82C)
  4. Steep Green Teas for 3 minutes, Black and Rooibos Teas for 3-5 minutes, and Oolong Teas for 5-7 minutes. For Herbal Infusions and Fruit Tisanes, steep to desired strength.
  5. Enjoy!
Be sure not to oversteep, especially with black teas, or your tea will taste bitter from the tannins released when brewing.
