The Serene Steeper

Serene Steepers prepare tea as a lifestyle. Although guided by best practices, Serene Steepers are not wed to the rules and are more likely to prepare tea according to their mood. Tea is usually enjoyed in tandem with another activity like reading a book, having a conversation or enjoying the view.



The Serious Steeper

Serious Steepers are studious. They research the precise methods to brew tea and implement them. Serious Steepers want to enjoy and document the unique characteristics of individual teas. Occasionally prone to carrying personal thermometers, they often “educate” bystanders on proper water temperature and steeping time.



The Super Steeper

Super Steepers pride themselves on getting the most out of their tea leaf. They purposefully steep their tea for long periods of time using boiling hot water. The resulting super brew is strong and caffeinated. Only in this way, can Super Steepers extract all the greatness from the leaf.



The Sidetracked Steeper

Sidetracked Steepers begin with the intent to brew tea a certain way, but find themselves distracted by life. Inconsistency is the only constant. Sometimes the result is a fantastic cup of tea, sometimes not. Either way, it goes down the hatch while on-the-go.



The Simple Steeper

All teas are created equal in the Simple Steeper’s preparation of tea. No need for honey, no need for milk. Tea leaves are sometimes strained, sometimes not, but always appreciated. Simple Steepers re-steep frequently and often do so by simply adding new leaves on top of the old leaves. Easy as that.
