Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 212°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 3-4 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 3-4 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!

If I had to choose only ONE tea to have in my cupboard it would absolutely be this one. And I am PICKY (my tastes run to Fujian and Yunnan black teas,Wuyi oolongs etc). This tea is so simple. So smooth and flavorful with zero bitterness and yet rich and full bodied. You can even dare to try it without sugar (or with less than you might usually) and it is still just as easy drinking and delicious. Have it anytime of day. Truly. Give this VERY reasonably priced hidden gem a try.

So, listen. I love dark, Assam tea. Deeply and fully. I am not impressed by high-end Darjeeling nor by bitter Earl Greys. I want a tea to taste of tea. My favorite is Assam Full Leaf at this site because it is sooooo fr--in good. Now, this Vietnamese, Assam-style, black tea is super good. As good as any black tea you'll find anywhere. This tea is the sleeper champion at Ohio Tea: absolutely killer for its price. Buy it, drink it, and tell your friends.
