Ya'an Tibetan Tea

New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 205°F
  • Timer 3 Min

Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 205°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!

I wish I had tried this long ago, but I know I will be buying it again. This tea is ridiculously smooth and rich, and while the blurb tags it for "hints of bread-like sweetness," I was struck by how much the first sip tasted and felt like crusty, hot baguette. Needs no sweetener to taste sweet but my wife assures me a hit of sugar didn't hurt. One note: it likes water closer to 210 F.
