Steeping how-to guide

Guide to Steeping – Each tea you have purchased is different. Please follow the guide we have provided for each category as a basic rule for each category. Remember that each tea we ship to you has steeping instructions or bag, but just in case you misplace that, the Sisters have you covered.

 

How much tea should you use for your teapot, travel mug or cup of tea? Everyone has their favourite cup or tea pot, so lets make this really easy for ALL. The golden rule that we use is 1 Teaspoon of tea for every 6oz of water you use. For instance, you have a 12oz travel mug, use 2 teaspoons of tea. You have an 18oz monster sized tea cup, use 3 teaspoons of tea. Last but not least, you have a 40oz teapot, use 6 1/2 teaspoons. These are just the basic rules you should use when you are getting used to a new tea. There actually are no rules when it comes to tea! If you love it strong, be our guest and double the tea dosage and oversteep, we won’t judge 😉
