Brewing Tip's and Advice:
Always use fresh water before boiling. Avoid re boiling water as this will take oxygen and nitrogen from the water which will guarantee you a dull tasteless mug of tea. Instead we want you to have a bright mug of tea, maximumising the taste and experience for you.
Generally as a guide with loose leaf tea's its one heaped teaspoon per person and one for the pot. For our Breakfast Blend we reccomend working on 1-2 teaspoons depending on the strength you normally choose to enjoy.
Brew temperature for black tea is generally 100deg straight from the kettle, and most importantly do not rush, take your time, allow the loose leaf to steep and release the bright flavour you so wish to enjoy, 3-5minutes will be enough to give you that tantilizing mug of tea and have you going back for more!
