Tea-brewing 101

We received a call from a customer who had never brewed loose-leaf tea before and wasn't sure how to go about it. So we told her one of the simplest ways to start:

Take a heaping tablespoon of Mellow Monk tea and put it in a teapot. (It helps if the teapot has some sort of filter inside to hold the leaves inside the pot when you pour.) Then fill the pot with water that's slightly cooler than boiling, wait 5 minutes, and pour. If the tea is too strong or two weak, adjust the amount of tea leaves accordingly.

We have more brewing instructions on our website. If you have any questions about brewing Mellow Monk tea, please drop us a line and we'll post your query and our answer. Or, if you have any advice you'd like to share, we'll post that, too.

Happy brewing!
