steeping guidelines


There are three essentials when it comes to making the perfect cup of tea:


  • Fresh water: never re-boil, and ensure the water is at the correct temperature for the type of tea you're brewing.

  • Correct measurement of tea: the general rule of thumb is 1 tsp. for every 8oz of water.

  • Accurate steeping time : avoid under or over steeping your leaves.


Follow these guidelines with your favourite tea or tisane to bring out the delicious subtleties of your tea like never before! The chart below will help with finding the right times and temperatures for your tea. Still stuck? Feel free to contact us with any brewing questions.
