rewing loose leaf tea properly produces an exquisite drink.

Compared to brewing from a tea bag the tea leaves are in direct contact with the brewing water.
Brewing loose leaves captures more of the tea’s original flavour and essential oils.

It’s more than an art; it’s a lifestyle!

Water Temperature for Tea Groups

General Rules

  • set 1 teaspoon per serve
  • Warm your cup or teapot (This only takes a minute and really does make a difference)
  • Do not over-boil the water (It drains the water of oxygen)

Brew Time

Do not brew your tea for too long as over brewing will leave a bitter aftertaste.
Larger leaf teas can be brewed for longer than the small cut leaf.
Brew large leaf teas for 3-5 mins and finer cuts teas between 2-4 mins.
