About Our Teas

How do I brew tea bags correctly?

Brewing tea with tea bags is like creating a little work of art - you need just the right ingredients and technique to get it just right! First, pick your favorite tea bag and choose a mug that speaks to your soul. Then, fill up the kettle and watch it boil - anticipation is half the fun! Once the water is ready, pour it over the tea bag like a gentle rain shower, and let it steep for a 3-5 minutes while you take a few deep breaths and appreciate the moment. Finally, remove the tea bag and take a sip, letting the warmth and flavor wash over you like a cozy blanket. Ahh, perfection!

What is the best water temperature and steeping time?

For most teas, a water temperature between 80-90℃ is ideal, allowing the flavors and aromas to bloom. For black tea, you want to go for a temperature of around 195°F and steep for 3-5 minutes, giving it enough time to show off its bold and robust flavors. Green tea prefers a cooler atmosphere, so aim for 175°F and steep for 2-3 minutes to unlock its delicate and floral notes. Herbal tea is like a wild child - give it all the heat you've got at 212°F and let it steep for 3-5 minutes to reveal its full-bodied and refreshing nature.

Why is whole-leaf tea better than fannings?

Fannings, or tea dust, are the crumbs at the bottom of the tea barrel - they may be quick and easy to brew, but they lack the depth and complexity of whole-leaf tea. Whole-leaf tea has more room to breathe and release its flavors, resulting in a richer, more satisfying cup.

Why are biodegradable tea bags better than paper tea bags?

Unlike paper tea bags that contain harmful chemicals like epichlorohydrin, biodegradable tea bags are made from natural, plant-based materials that are free of toxins and pollutants. Plus, they break down easily in compost, reducing waste and minimizing your carbon footprint.

Why are pyramid tea bags better?

Pyramid tea bags are like magical tea sachets that bring out the full potential of your tea leaves! The unique pyramid shape allows for maximum infusion space, allowing the tea leaves to fully expand and release their flavors and aromas.

Can I use the same tea bags multiple times, or should I throw them away after one use?

It is generally not recommended to reuse tea bags. While it is possible to get some additional flavor from a second steeping, the quality and strength of the tea will likely be significantly reduced. Some whole-leaf teas can be brewed multiple times without losing too much flavor or quality. This is because the larger leaves and slower release of flavor can allow for more gradual extraction over multiple steepings.

How do I store tea bags to keep them fresh?

Ideally, you should store tea bags in an airtight container in a cool, dry place

Can I make iced tea with Freshleaf tea?

Absolutely! Freshleaf tea is the perfect ingredient for a refreshing glass of iced tea on a hot summer day. In fact, it's like giving your taste buds a cool and crisp hug! Simply brew a strong infusion of Freshleaf's organic tea blends by steeping the tea leaves in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, and then strain the tea into a glass filled with ice.

Can I make latte-style drinks with Freshleaf tea?

To make a latte-style drink with Freshleaf tea, brew a strong tea concentrate with your preferred blend.
