Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 180°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 3 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 3 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!

Other Brewing Suggestions

Infuse a tablespoon of leaves in a small pot for just about a minute. The tea is then re-infused and served 2 or 3 more times. Each infusion yields a different liquor and experience from the proceeding cup.

Label Art

Pure oolong tea grown in the mountains of central Taiwan. Delicious honey notes reveal themselves more and more with each infusion; enjoy this hand-rolled tea in the morning as a gentle start to the day. Similar to Tie Guan Yin, this oolong is grown at high elevation resulting in high amounts of catechins (antioxidants). To pull out the lighter notes of this tea, prepare at 170° for 3 minutes. To pull out the subtle minerality of this tea, prepare as recommended below. The rolled style of leaves allows for multiple great infusions. This tea is best steeped at 180° at 1 tsp/cup for 3-4 minutes. Yields up to three infusions of optimal quality.
