Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 3 1/4" wide by 4 3/4" long°F in a kettle. Add BPA-free of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 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 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 BPA-free 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 BPA-free of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

Toss some tea into Manatea's BPA-free silicone rubber tail. Manatea is an ideal teatime companion (and a great listener).

She perches securely on the rim of your tea cup, so she fits all sizes of mugs and brews loose tea perfectly but won't fall in. Save waste and add fun to your tea-making with re-usable infusers and strainers in a variety of shapes.

For every Manatea we sell, we will put $2 towards adopting a manatea from World Wildlife Fund manatee program and

So far we have adopted two manateas!

Save the Manatee Club

BETSY was named after Betsy Dearth, who was a ranger at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Betsy the manatee is very friendly and curious and is quick to investigate anything new. Ranger Dearth called her, "the inspector." Betsy currently lives at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.
