How to get started with Loose Tea

We'd love you to love loose leaf tea as much as we do (which is really quite a lot!). Here are some helpful hints to get you started ...

Tasting Tea

  • LOOK at the beautiful unbroken leaves
  • SMELL the essential oils and fuller flavours
  • MEASURE one TSP for a mug and half a TSP for a china cup
  • BREW green teas for 2 minutes, black teas for 2-3 minutes and all others for 5 minutes
  • ENJOY a handcrafted, very special and delicious cup

Your Tools of the Trade

If you are just making a cup for yourself then a strainer is the best tool to use and gives you full control over brewing time.
