The key to the best tasting tea is good tasting water in addition to premium quality tea. Bottled Spring Water makes a good choice in brewing/infusing your loose leaf tea. Temperature of the water is also very important in the brewing/infusing tea. Different types of tea brew or infuse at different temperatures.
212 degree water is boiling and 180 degree is just under boiling. Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 6 oz cup of water. Follow the guidelines below according to the type of tea you are brewing:
|•||Black Tea: 212 degree water, steep for 3-4|
|•||Oolong Tea: 180 degree water, steep for 2-3 minutes|
|•||Green Tea: 170-180 degree water, steep for 1-2 minutes|
|•||White Tea: 180 degree water, steep for 2-3 minutes|
|•||Decaf Tea: 212 degree water, steep for 3-4 minutes|
|•||Herbal Tea/Fruit Blend, Rooibos/South African Red Bush and Mate are best infused at 212 degree water, steep for 5-7 minutes|
You can make your own ice tea by brewing your tea as usual, but double the amount of loose leaf tea, cool your tea, then pour over ice or keep it in the refrigerator the day before you need it.
It is best to keep tea in an airtight container and away from heat, light, and moisture. Do not refrigerate or freeze as it will alter the taste of your tea. Some tea is best served with milk and honey/sugar, some tea also good for multiple brewing/infusions.
