    This is my current favorite tea. I love flavored teas and have been searching for teas without artificial flavors, and was so happy to have find my favorite flavored tea ever. The fruit flavor is perfectly balancing and brightening the tea flavor. The color of this tea is also absolutely stunning.

    The flavor is a wondeful balance of plum and oolong, and the color is absolutely beautiful.

    Ooh this is nice. It's a more complex flavor than the raspberry green I think. A great afternoon pick-me-up.

We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.

Quantity of tea: one rounded teaspoon (1.25) per 8 oz cup of water




pro-ico-tempature.png

Water temperature: use water that has been heated until the first bubbles begin to rise from the bottom of the pot (195° F)

Steeping time: 4-7 minutes




Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
