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!

Label Art

Our Mint Spice Green Tea is a light, uplifting blended green tea. The aroma is mostly that of spearmint, while the flavor is a more complex blend of spearmint and green tea, with anise appearing as only a light aftertaste. Even if you normally dislike the flavor of anise, don't rule this tea out: The anise only adds a hint of complexity to the dominant flavor of spearmint, rather than dominating the flavor as anise often does.

Extra Info:

Spearmint is a very versatile plant, both in its uses and its growing condition requirements. Though it can be grown in a variety of regions, it grows best in moist soil; for this reason, it is actually an invasive species in the Great Lakes region. And gardeners beware: Plant spearmint (and other mint species) in a small pot before placing it in the ground, or it may take over your entire yard!

Organic green tea | Cinnamon | Organic spearmint | Anise,
