Q: How do I properly store my loose-leaf tea?

A: Store your loose leaf tea in a cool, dry place away from sunlight to maintain freshness. Using an airtight container can also help preserve its flavor and aroma.

Q: How much tea should I use per cup?

A: One teaspoon of loose-leaf tea is recommended for every 8 oz. of water. However, preferences can vary, so adjust according to your taste.

Q: What's the ideal water temperature for brewing tea?

A: Different teas require different temperatures. For instance, green teas are best brewed at lower temperatures, while black teas can handle boiling water.

Q: How long should I steep my tea?

A: Steeping times vary based on the type of tea. Oversteeping can result in a bitter taste, so following the recommended time for each tea variety is essential.

Q: Can I re-steep my loose-leaf tea?

A: Yes, many high-quality loose-leaf teas can be steeped multiple times. Each steep may reveal new flavours and nuances.

Q: What's the shelf life of your teas?

A: Most loose-leaf teas can last up to two years when stored properly. However, fresher teas will always provide a better flavour profile.

Q: Do any of your teas contain caffeine?

A: Teas like green, black, and oolong naturally contain caffeine. Herbal infusions, on the other hand, are typically caffeine-free.

Q: How should I dispose of used tea leaves?

A: Used tea leaves are biodegradable and can be composted or added to your garden soil as a natural fertilizer.

Q: What's the difference between whole-leaf tea and tea bags?

A: Think of whole-leaf teas as the VIPs of the tea world, strutting their stuff and flaunting their full-bodied flavours. 🍃💃 On the other hand, tea bags? They're more like the confetti left after the party – tiny, broken, and just not as fabulous!
