Tea Information

Introduction to Making Tea

Below are some guidelines to get started making tea. Around the world there are variations to all of these guidelines. We encourage customers to experiment with different amounts of tea leaves, different steeping times, and try steeping tea both hot and iced. Just like any other recipe, everyone has their own tastes and does things a little bit differently.

How to Make Tea (Conventional Units)

Use 1-2 teaspoons of tea leaves per 8 ounces of water. Use one big rounded teaspoon for a large mug (approximately 12 ounces of water). Use one tablespoon of tea leaves per quart. Use two heaping tablespoons per gallon. Some people like their tea stronger, so once you’ve gotten some experience making tea it’s okay to use more tea leaves if you like the flavor to be stronger.

How to Make Tea (Metric Units)

Use 1-2 grams of tea leaves per 250 ml of water. Use five grams of tea leaves per liter (approximately one large pot of tea).

Tea Steeping Times and Temperatures

This chart shows how long to steep different types of tea and what temperature the water should be. It’s definitely okay to vary from these guidelines and see what results in the flavor that you like best. Some herbals can be steeped for a very long time and some green teas are better with a very short steeping time.
