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.
To brew Western style use 1 heaped teaspoon for every 350ml of water. Place tisane in a spacious filter and infuse in boiling water for about 1-2 minutes.

The temperature of water depends on the type of tisane but generally nearly boiling water is suitable for most tisanes. Can be infused up to 3 times simply by adding fresh water.
To brew Gong Fu style use 2 heaped teaspoons per 200ml of water and reduce your brewing to 15-30 seconds. The brew will become richer and release its flavour in stages for your enjoyment.
