Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 185°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 2 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 2 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

For bergamot lovers, jasmine lovers, and green tea lovers, this tea tops the list. An intriguing combination of flavors and aromas that can pull you right out of a boring afternoon while you read the exciting story of the Monkey King in the Chinese legend "Journey to the West" written in the Ming Dynasty by Wu Chen-En.

Extra Info:

The Monkey King legend from 1500s China holds that Monkey was born of rock and was a mischievous fellow who demanded immortality from the gods. The story is a pseudo-historical account of a monk (Xuanzang) who went to India in the 7th century to seek Buddhist scriptures to bring back to China. The principle story consists of eighty-one calamities suffered by Monkey and his guardians Tripitaka and Sandy, who are monks, and Pigsy, a pig.

This is one of my favorite teas. The bergamot and jasmine flavors work very well together. If you like Earl Grey or Jasmine teas, this is worth a taste.
