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 4 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 4 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!

The dry tea is black full leaves of uniform size with many golden tips and a malty, slightly smoky aroma. In the cup, the tea is honey-amber in color and has a balanced, woody and green herbaceous fragrance. It has a thick mouthfeel (at one teaspoon per six ounce cup steeped three minutes in 205 degree fresh water), is smooth, balanced, and delicate with a pleasingly astringent mild bitterness. The taste includes a touch of saltiness and sweetness, no sourness, and finishes with an even stronger mouthfeel on the palate. Overall, for taste, aroma, and value, this is a superb black tea for mornings or afternoons. I enjoy it with a little sugar and just a teaspoon of milk.

Great Tea! It's 100 degrees in Carlsbad this time of year and I never miss my afternoon cup of Assam.
