Brew Guides

Since our teas are so utterly unique and distinct from one another, each tea has its own specific set of brewing instructions to follow in order to get the best possible extraction of flavour.
 
On the back of each of our tea tins, you’ll find the exact brewing instructions for each individual tea. However, we’d always suggest experimenting with your tea; using different quantities, water temperatures and steeping times to find what suits your personal taste.
 
Use the below table as a reference point on how to brew each tea by its style / type. Please note that these are westernised brewing styles and NOT Gongfu Cha.
