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!

Nilgiri black tea perfectly compliments the candy-like spice character of the cardamom. We blend this tea in house to be extra spicy with cardamom flavor (By gently grinding and breaking open the pods).

Once a cardamom pod is broken open it starts to loose flavor, because of this we only blend this tea in small batches ensuring optimal freshness when it arrives to you!

Ingredients:

Black tea, ground cardamom pods,

Origin:

Tea: Nilgiri, India | Cardamom: Guatemala

I love chai style teas that are heavy on the cardamom. To find a black tea that is JUST cardamom was intriguing to me. This was everything I was hoping it would be. It's warm and soothing. When drinking this tea there is no doubt that the spice is cardamom, but its not overwhelming or abrasive. The spice works well with the black tea base, complimentary not overpowering. This is a wonderful tea.

This cardamom black tea has become my favorite through the long, dark, cold Alaska winter. The aroma alone is worth the price! I brew this using a tea kettle that brews to 212, using a precise tea measuring spoon for a 16 oz. mug, let it steep exactly 3 minutes (Suri times it on my iPhone), add two lumps of sugar and PERFECTION in a mug! Relaxing yet refreshing and the health (and romantic) properties of cardamom are well documented. Thanks New Mexico Tea Company for the best "cuppa" ever!
