#1 Ultimate Brew Guide To Live By

Posted by Tess Walker on

I think it's fair to say that we have all made a dodgy cup of tea that needed to be tossed, and I think it's also fair to say that it was honestly never intentional - let's all claim blissful ignorance shall we? Not anymore, no more over brewed cups of tea, not for me and not for you! 

Basically all you need to know are a couple of standard rules, but we're also going to get technical too (this goes out to all the fellow tea nerds). 

As a general rule to follow - black teas should be steeped for 3-5 minutes, green teas 1-2 minutes, and herbal teas can be steeped from anywhere from 8-10 minutes (these ones will never develop bitter tannins because they don't have any of the Cameilla sinensis plant in them).  

Now, let's nerd out a little.
