Tea 101: How to Brew Tea from Loose Leaf

One of the things our customers say to us quite frequently is that they would like to drink more loose leaf tea but they don’t know how to. And I promise you, it’s genuinely easy!


Tips for better tea:


I like to warm the pot because I find that it wakens the tea. A cold vessel will reduce the temperature of the water pouring in. We want it to stay hot!

Steep for a minimum of 3 minutes or up to 5 minutes. Don’t leave the tea leaves in the water or it will become very bitter.

For Indian teas, I steep only once. I do go up to 3 to 5 times for Chinese teas.
