Base

Is this your first time using loose leaf tea? Or are you looking for a quick refresher course? Pay attention!

Amount of: Use 1-2 teaspoons per cup of 300 ml. The amount depends on which type of tea you’re using. Check below to see all the teas we currently have in our range.

Filter/sieve/tea egg: Put the loose tea in a filter, sieve or tea egg. Put it in a mug or in a tea pot.

Water: Preferably, use water that has been descaled. Tap water can be used, but if you are a tea lover you will taste the difference and become a fan of mineral water. The tea will be used to its full advantage.

Temperature: If you are a tea lover, we recommend using a kettle with a thermometer. The ideal temperature differs per kind of tea. Search for the tea type in the list below. The desired temperature can be found here.

Time: The amount of time the tea should brew is dependent on the desired taste. Every product has a specific way of preparation. This can be found on the packaging and on our website for every individual product.
