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.
