Brewing loose leaf Tease Tea is easy! All you need are four things:
1. Tea Infuser
A tea infuser keeps any tea leaves from floating freely in your cup while you drink. After all, you probably don’t want to be chewing on tea leaves while you drink! It also lets you stop steeping tea after a specified time. This keeps your tea from getting bitter.
When your tea is done steeping for the specified time on your package, simply remove the infuser and set it aside for a second steeping of tea.
Did you know that certain teas you can re-steep two or more times? Pretty much all of our blends except our black tea & caffeine free blends are just as good the first time when re-steeped!
2. Tea Mug
We suggest grabbing a mug that holds at least 8oz of water. Tea cups are pretty to look at, but are generally quite small which means a shorter tea drinking experience. Our 3 in 1 glass tumbler also has a tea strainer built in, which is perfect for making tea on the go.
3. Tea Kettle (Hot Water)
You will need a tea kettle to boil water. Traditional stovetop kettles are useful. Electric kettles boil water faster and more efficiently. Even a pot of boiled water will work just fine, but be careful!
4. Loose Leaf Tea
Now all you need is some Tease Tea. If you need to re-stock, shop here.
How to Make Tease Tea Instructions
1. Boil water.
2. While waiting for water to boil, add the appropriate amount of loose leaf tea to your tea infuser. Place the tea infuser inside your mug. Tip: Double the amount of tea you use when making iced tea
3. When the water reaches the desired temperature, pour it over the tea infuser into your mug. This will allow the water to circulate through the leaves.
4. Time your tea. Once the time is up, dunk the infuser a couple of times to circulate the water. Remove the infuser and set aside for a second steeping.
5. Serve in your favorite mug, or pour over ice for a satisfying iced tea. Tip: when resteeping your tea, add another minute to the steep time, this is because the tea needs longer to draw out the flavor.
How To Brew Iced Tease Tea
When brewing tea to ice, you can use our perfect cold brew iced tea pitcher, or you can simply follow the instructions above for making hot tea, but double the amount of loose leaf tea you use. Doubling the amount of tea per cup allows for ice without diminishing flavor. To learn more about using our iced tea maker, check out this article.
