A WORD ABOUT OUR TEA TASTER BAGS

These taster bags are a great way to sample a tea without buying a larger pack. Each taster bag has enough tea leaves to brew a large family pot or can be split in half if you want to make an individual mug of tea. Do not forget to reinfuse your tea according to our brewing guide recommendations. This means that each taster bag will provide around 4-10 mugs depending on the tea selected.

 

 

Directions:

To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Western style, infuse about 3.5g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 95c water for about 2 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 5 times by adding 30 seconds for every subsequent infusion.


To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Gong fu style, infuse about 8g of leaf per 150ml of 95c water for about 20 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 8 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.
