Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 212°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 5 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 5 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

Honeybush is a caffeine free plant from South Africa. It has a wonderfully sweet and slight astringent flavor with undertones of honey. The addition of citrus fruits makes this blend a great iced tea in the summer or hot soothing brew in the winter.


Honeybush, orange peel, lemon grass, rose-hips, safflowers, with orange, and lemon flavor,


Rooibos: South Africa | Blended: USA

I really like this tea. This is my first time ordering it and I was pleasantly surprised. From the moment that I poured the tea into my cup I could smell the honey and lemon blend. It's light and does not need a lot of sweetener. This is my new go to tea. As for delivery and service, it's always amazing. NM Tea company is my tea company. :-)

I LOVE this tea. There is no need for sweetener and the blend of tastes is perfect. I especially love it in the summer months iced and I throw in some mint leaves when I feel like it. Refreshing, light, and perfectly sweet.

I bought a 1oz sample of this tea and I wish I had gotten more! From the moment you pour the tea into your cup you notice how great the smell is. I haven't tried this one iced yet but I'd imagine it would be fantastic. Like the other reviews, you need little to no sweetener as it tastes pretty darn good with none. Will definitely order more when this sample runs out!

Over the years, this is my go to when friends come over and they are not big tea drinkers. They are instantly draw into the light aroma and delightful test of orange, honey, and lemon grass.
