A wonderful idea and such a lovely pick-me-up for the recipients. Perfect way to support friends, family, and a local business at the same time. Thanks John, these were much appreciated!
I was first sent a sample package from a friend without me knowing. And I just loved the idea! So I did the same thing for a friend... All went super well and the teas are very lovely.
Sent 3 of these cards to family members during lockdown. They loved them and thought it was a really fantastic gift. Very prompt delivery 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...
