January Steeping Guide

Welcome to January's Steeping Guide. We've been busy spending time with loved ones and friends this past month. It's been a wonderful month full of love and light, and we're ready to begin this New Year with renewed energy. 

We've put together some flavors that we think will start your year off, and give you some new things to experience. Let us know below how you enjoyed this month's teas, and how you made them!

We've included a special Premium tea as one of your 7 teas this month to kick off the new year with a bit of luxury.

The Steeping Instructions below are meant as a guideline for you to steep your teas. If you prefer a stronger taste, we recommend adding up to .5 tsp extra of tea. Don't steep the tea for longer, as some of the teas have been timed to release the right amount of flavor and ensure no bitterness will result. If you have any questions, we're always here to help!

Here are the 7 delicious teas you have in your box this month and how to make them:

General Recommendations:

If you have a tea kettle with a built in thermometer you can pour hot water directly on tea leaves, without waiting.

It's recommended to use a tea filter bag or infuser that allows the leaves to float freely.

Adding more tea makes it taste stronger, not steeping the tea leaves longer.

Don't use microwave heated water, the lack of oxygen will make your tea taste flat.
