My daily tea ritual is a steaming hot cup of caffeinated tea alone on the back porch in the morning to get my motor running, iced herbal blends during the day (that I have steeped cold brew overnight), an iced Matcha after lunch, and a calming hot herbal blend with valerian root, chamomile, or lavender in the evening.
Tea Spout Tea
Dried herbs if you want specific health benefits
A single or multi-cup steeper (depending on how many cups you want to make at once)
Fresh water (filtered if possible)
Programmable tea kettle (Walmart.com has a ton of them), stove or microwave
Step 1: Read the package for steeping time and water instructions
Step 2: Measure 1 tsp. tea per every 8oz hot or boiling water
Step 3: Let the water stop boiling before gently pouring it over your leaves
Step 4: Set a timer according to package
Step 5: Remover steeper from tea (or if you're using the Tea Genie, just sit it atop your cup)
Step 6: Optional. Add Matcha, sweeteners, and milks. I like vanilla matcha, agave or brown sugar!
Step 6: Happy sipping!
Re-steep those leaves! Just add a minute to the steeping time.
* Never re-boil water. It loses oxygen and produces a flat taste. You don't deserve that!
* Don't cover your leaves while they are steeping. Allowing oxygen to circulate while steeping allows for maximum flavor.
* Many of our blends contain healthy herbs but you can always add more!
* Pouring water at a roaring boing over leaves may scald them and diminsh flavor.
