Preparing Our Teas

Brewing tea can sometimes be a daunting task, especially if its your first time! Here's a temperature and steeping guide for the teas that we offer. 

 

 Method  Weight (grams) Water / Temperature Steeping time*  Re-steep? 
Hot Brew  2 grams
1-2 tsp
150ml / 90°C 30 - 60s 3 - 5x
 Cold Brew  10 grams
2-3 tbsp
1 Litre / Cold 8+ hours in Fridge 1 - 2x

Hot brew teas are recommended as a warm accompaniment for a meal, or as a morning, afternoon, or even evening beverage as our teas contain a much lower amount of caffeine as compared to Coffee or even Matcha.

For convenience, Cold Brew teas are recommended as it can be made well in advance and it also draws out the natural sweetness of the teas without the bitterness normally associated with teas.

 *Adjust to taste, longer for stronger tea
