How to Brew Whole Leaf Tea
The first step is to determine the right quantity of tea to use, which will depend on the type of tea you are preparing. For our loose leaf Earl Grey Darjeeling and our loose leaf Jasmine Green Tea we recommend ½ tsp per mug
Make sure to use spring water or filtered water to achieve the best results.
Place your brewing basket on a cup filled with hot water and wait. The infusion time depends on the type of tea you are preparing. We recommend around 3 minutes for our Earl Grey Darjeeling and loose leaf Jasmine Green Tea. Then remove the brewing basket.
Remember to avoid covering your brewing basket when preparing green tea.
After drinking your first mug, you can re-infuse up to two times.
