Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 190°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 3 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 3 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 orange citrus taste combines spectacularly with the earthy oolong. A natural tasting brisk oolong thats great as an afternoon tea.

The leaves may be re-infused several times, with each resulting infusion yielding different liquor from the proceeding cup.

This has been my favorite tea since I tried it a couple years ago. It has a refreshing citrus taste and smells heavenly. The oolong is the perfect tea for the flavor (neither masks the other). I would highly recommend.

I love this tea. It has a very mild orange flavor which tastes great with just a little bit of honey. I've made iced tea with this one with great results.
