Brewing and Storage Tips

 

In Search for the Perfect Brew

 The perfect cup of tea varies from one to another. Sometimes it takes awhile to experiment with just how strong or sweet you would like your tea. But fret not, we’re here to show you the ropes and teach you on how we like to brew our tea.

We recommend that you use fresh water and bring it to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea pyramid into a 200ml cup and pour the water in. Sounds easy enough? Well it is that easy to brew A Cup of Tea, but for the Perfect Cup of Tea, you might want to take note of the following recommendations: 

Black Tea: Heat fresh water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea pyramid and steep for 3-5 minutes. Depending on individual’s preference of tea, the longer you steep, the stronger the brew gets. Do note that over steeping however causes the tea to turn overly astringent and puckery.

Green/White Tea: Heat fresh water just short of boiling. As green and white teas are more delicate, using excessively hot water will burn the leaves and cause the brew to turn astringent or bitter. Pour water over tea pyramid and steep for 2-3 minutes. As steeping pyramids over the recommended time may cause teas to turn bitter, do remember to remove tea bag after steeping.

Rooibos/Herbal/Fruit: Heat fresh water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea pyramid and steep for 5-7 minutes. As herbal and fruit teas come in slightly bigger pieces, a longer brewing time is required to extract its full flavor. After steeping for 5-7 minutes, remove tea pyramid and enjoy.

You could also use the unique teabag teapot or teabag holder to prevent over steeping your tea! The perfect brew is made easy with pretty tea accessories.

Storing your Tea

Tea should be kept at a constant room temperature and away from sunlight. Due to the nature of tea leaves, it tends to absorb neighboring smells; hence it is not ideal to store your tea next to your coffee and spice cabinets.
