Brewing loose leaf tea
Measure Your Loose Tea
Step One: Start by measuring your loose leaf tea. Generally, you should measure 1 teaspoon loose leaf tea per 8 oz cup of tea. However, fluffier blends such as white teas and Chamomile may require as much as one tablespoon or more, while denser teas such as Gunpowder may require less than one teaspoon.
Look at the label on the back of your Arbor Teas bag to find our suggested serving size per 8 oz cup.
Place the measured tea in a T-sac to make a do-it-yourself teabag or directly in an infuser. Next place the T-sac or infuser in your mug/teapot.
Heat Your Water to Tempature
Step Two: Next, heat your water to the temperature suggested below. Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.
Black & Pu-Erh - 212° F
Oolong - 195° F
Green & White - 180° F
Herbal - 212° F
If you don’t have a thermometer handy to measure your water temperature, don’t worry! Here’s an easy way to estimate 180° F, 195° F and 212° F.
180° F = bubbles form on the bottom of the pot
195° F = the first bubbles begin to rise
212° F = full rolling boil
Steep Your Tea
Step Three: Pour your heated water over the tea-filled T-Sac or through the tea-filled infuser.
Measure 1 cup (8 oz) hot water per cup of tea.
Be sure the tea is covered completely with water. Steep your tea for the amount of time shown below. When enough time has elapsed, remove the T-sac or infuser. Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.
Black & Pu-Erh - 3-5 minutes
