We prefer all our teas naked - meaning without cream or sugar - but many enjoy tea with both (British style). We encourage you to try our teas without embellishments first!
Water: Fresh filtered water is preferred. Do not use distilled water. Depending on your area, tap water may contain chemicals or high levels of minerals which may affect the taste of the tea.
Temperature: Water temperature is just as important as timing. Earl Grey Black teas like water to be boiling (212˚ F).
Time: Many guidelines suggest that black tea is best brewed for 2-5 minutes. The longer the brew time, the stronger, more robust and tannic the tea will be. (Don't feel bad if you like your black tea at 1-2 minutes!)
