Proper Steeping

Suggested ratio is one teaspoon of leaves per cup of water. However, the light and voluminous teas will taste best with twice that amount.

To steep your tea:

Use boiling water when preparing black, dark oolong and herbal teas.

Use cooler water (under the boiling point) when steeping green, light oolong and white teas.

Steeping time is:

3-5 minutes for most black teas

5-7 minutes for dark oolong, herbal, rooibos and white teas

3 minutes for green and light oolong teas

DO NOT over-steep or your tea will taste bitter.
