New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 piece Per Cup
  • Kettle 190°F
  • Timer 1 Min

Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 190°F in a kettle. Add 1 piece of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 1 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 1 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 piece 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 piece of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

5 Stars

I really, really like this tea. I'll admit that it's likely not for everyone, but it pleases my palate highly. I like green teas and I've been enjoying dark shu pu'er teas for years; this sheng tea appeals to both those tastes while differing from each as well. This is a complex and flavorful tea, certainly not floral or fruity, but neither is it bitter (unless you use boiling water...don't do that); it's kind of a Tim Burton tea....a bit darker and more twisted than the others. A tuocha will give several infusions of rich tea, through the course of an evening. This goes very well after a meal, cleaning the palate and settling the stomach nicely. I'm hooked.
