How to Prepare Different Types of Teas?
Flavored Black Tea
To have the best flavors, we recommend using the Gifts Ready To Go Gold Collection Flavored Tea Gift Set rather than ordinary tea bags. Water flow around this tea makes it steep better since the tea is not confined in a bag. Heat water in a kettle or saucepan and add to the teapot to a temperature of 200 °- 212 °, put the loose-leaf tea leaves in the infuser and pour the water you have boiled over them. Make sure to use high quality ceramic or cast iron teapot sets. Thereafter, allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes and enjoy your tea. Feel free to strain the leaves, or if not, you can leave them at the base of the brewing pot. Add milk and sugar as desired.

Preparation of this tea is an art that can be mastered. This tea traces its origins back to China’s Fujian mountains. To prepare great tea, use our Premium Mixed and Oolong Tea collection and add it to a teapot, separately boil water to a temperature of about 195 ° and pour over the tea leaves. The teapot should then be covered and allowed to steep for 3 minutes. Enjoy the sweet smelling aroma and take the tea while it’s still hot.
Place iced tea in a heatproof glass pitcher. Simmer water to 195 °- 205 ° and pour it into the pitcher. Allow 5 minutes for it to steep and pour tea over ice filled tea glasses. For best results, use our Gold Collection Iced Tea Gift Set.
It is recommended to use filtered water when making tea. Many towns and cities add Chlorine to the water and this will alter the taste of the brewed tea. In addition, if you prefer stronger or weaker tea, don’t vary the brewing time, simply increase or decrease the amount of tea. It is also worth noting that some green, white or oolong teas can be brewed or infused multiple times – add more water and increase the brewing time to get more out of the tea leaves.
