Wonderful tea soothing and spicy
This is the most gorgeous brew I've ever tasted! - and pssst! - don't throw the contents of the tea bag away once used. Tip it all out on to a little dish, let it dry out, and nibble bits for days to come!
As a lover of chocolate ginger biscuits, and someone with a general dislike of ginger teas, I was sceptical about the sample of this that I received with my order. But wow, was I in for a treat?! A truly delicious tea with the right balance of deep chocolate and real ginger, it felt as indulgent as the biscuit equivalent. I will definitely be buying some more!
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!

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...
