How do you steep herbs?

Heat Your Water

Fill your kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to a rolling boil – unless you’re making loose leaf green tea or 100% white tea. In that case, stop short of boiling to avoid “cooking” the delicate leaves.
Plan on about one teaspoon of tea or herbs per six-ounce cup. Place leaves in a specialized tea steeping tool like our tea infusing basket our Traveler’s Tea Press for on-the-go steeping or directly into the teapot.

Time Your Steeping

Pour the heated water over the tea, cover if in a pot, and infuse to taste.

Enjoy Your Tea

Remove the infuser, or use a tea strainer for the leaves. Pour the tea into a cup and enjoy Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp.
