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.

What is GABA? GABA stands for Gamma-AminoButyric Acid is a chemical messenger, or neurotransmitter, that naturally occurs in the brain and it helps ensure that information reaching your brain cells moves efficiently and accurately. To create the GABA in the tea, the oolong is specially processed by flushing it with nitrogen during the otherwise traditional processing of an oolong tea. The GABA chemical compound has been touted as lowering stress levels, improving sleep, and reducing depression and anxiety. To read more about this please visit Wikipedia

Why we sell it: To us, the most important characteristics of any tea are quality, freshness, and of course taste. With that said we fell in love with this tea! This tea is a higher oxidized oolong that begins as a tightly rolled brown ball and steeps up a deep amber liquor. It smells like a fresh garden of honeysuckle and chamomile on a wet rainy morning. The taste is sweet and mild and hangs in the mouth for a few swallows making for a fantastic experience.
