Great product to accompany the Shibui teas, nice sized bags to let the user select the strength.
I was putting loose leaf tea into a cafetiere and then having to scrape the used tea out. These tea bag filters makes life so much easier and they are compostable so it is straight out of the cup and into the compast caddy.
Your teas are excellent; also the tea filters
Really useful product both for using in a cup and a teapot. Brilliant that they are environmentally friendly
These filters are really handy for using with loose leaf tea. Only used for a single cup so far but will look forward to using with a teapot when I have guests. Like that they are biodegradeable too
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
