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!

Label Art

This French blend has a bright coppery color and Ooh-la-la floral notes from "creme de la vanille", Jasmine and Lavender, deliciously blended with flavorful Ceylons, pungent Assams and malty Kenyas. Truly a unique and wonderful tea.

Extra Info:

With their innate sense of style and sophistication, the French elevate even the simple act of taking tea to an art form. From the delightful tea salons dotting every Parisian neighborhood to tea served at outdoor cafes nestled in the hills of Provence.

Tea became the fashionable beverage in French society toward the end of the reign of Louis XIV. Members of the upper class would gather to debate issues of the day and drink tea. Princess of Palatine remarked in 1706 that tea could make one chaste and therefore was better for Catholic priests than for Protestant ministers.

Ingredients:

luxury black tea, luxury green tea, rose petals, lavender, jasmine blossoms, cornflower petals, and natural flavors.,

Origin:

Sri Lanka, Kenya

I was hoping for a slightly, but no overpoweringly floral tea, which is precisely what this proved to be. Brewed, it is very beautiful, with a fairly crisp finish. The rose and jasmine come up prominently, a great blend all in all

The rose and jasmine are the florals that stand out in both fragrance and taste in this tea. But it is a subtle and delicate undercurrent. Tea is my drink of choice and I seldom drink anything else so when I discover a new blend to add I love to share and this is definitely one I will be sharing.

This blend is visually quite pretty, but it also tastes fantastic! I brewed it with the same parameters I would a green and all the flavors came through beautifully. Jasmine, rose, lavender, and then a malty black & a light hint of green at the end. Definitely a blend I'll be dipping into often!
