Brewing Instructions

These are delicate leaves so we recommend infusing in freshly drawn or filtered water at 95℃ for 3 to 5 minutes.
1 teaspoon per cup or to taste. Don’t forget to add more water for a further infusion.

“Like the green teas I feel these Darjeeling black teas are best enjoyed not too strong. I tend to use just half a teaspoon per cup. I also add more water for further infusions.” James
