How to Brew Tea

For optimum freshness, we recommend you stock up on tea in an amount you can consume within three months. Tea should be stored at room temperature and in an airtight container free of moisture and away from light. We recommend stainless steel or ceramic containers.

Brewing a Cup of Tea

Brewing good tea depends on fresh water. Try using bottled, spring water if you are unsure about your source of water. Most teas should be brewed just before the water has come to boil. As a starting point, the general rule of thumb is to use one teaspoon of tea for each 6 oz. of water. See the charts below for quantity and steeping times.
