Ingredients: Organic black tea
Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon (5grams) per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 2-3 minutes (1st infusion), 4 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
