Which teas do you recommend? This is a question I get all the time and Its Complicated. A good way to find teas that suit your taste is what types of food or drinks do you like. If you like things spicy, try chai. If you like Sweet, or mild flavors, A vanilla or a Chinese green might do the trick. Sencha is fresh and has complex flavor profiles. Another way to chose is to select a tea based on the time of day. Many of our customers like a stronger flavor in the morning to get going and a light or caffeine-free selection in the evening.
- What are the differences between all these teas? It has been said that there are 10,000 styles of tea, all from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The differences in flavor come from processing steps after harvest, growing region, weather and climate differences, drying process and the brewing style. Most people classify tea by processing type: green, black, oolong, white, etc.
- How do I make the perfect cup of tea? Loose tea is just as easy as bagged tea, Your actually getting the full flavor of the tea when drinking it loose! Each label has our recommendations for amount of tea, water and steeping time. To make a 16-ounce pot of Irish Breakfast, for example, infuse 2 tsp. tea in 16 oz water at 208°F for 5 minutes. To make iced tea, double the amount of tea and pour over ice. To make a quart of iced Irish Breakfast, infuse 4 tsp. tea in 16 oz water at 208°F for 5 minutes, then pour over ice.
- How do I make iced tea? There are four methods to making iced tea: the Quick method, the Best method, a cold infusion, and pitcher-sized infusion.
Please note: These instructions are for tea. For herbal infusions, triple the tea quantity.
The Quick Method
Infuse 1-2 teaspoons of tea per 8 oz. water. After infusing, pour over a glass full of ice and enjoy! Serves one.
The Best Method
Infuse 1 teaspooon of tea per 8 oz. water. After infusing, chill completely and drink. Serves one.
Grab a T-Sac and add approximately 1 oz. of tea leaves inside the T-sac. Fill a one gallon pitcher with cold water. Place the T-sac in the pitcher and let it sit in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
The Pitcher Method
This is the Impatient Method on a larger scale. Fill up a T-Sac with 1 oz. of tea leaves and place in a one-gallon pitcher. Infuse the tea using only 1/2 gallon of hot water. After tea is done infusing, pour over a one gallon pitcher of ice.
- Can I reuse my tea leaves? Many teas can be infused, or brewed, twice or more. After you finish your first pot, simply pour more hot water over the wet leaves. Wait the same amount of time as recommended and drink. How many times? It is really a matter of personal taste, but some teas will produce good results four or more times. Experiment with your Teas.
- As I always tell all of my tea drinking friend stay away from the tea bags and keep drinking the good stuff!!!
