Tealightful Treasures

Recent Tasting Notes

This is one of my favorite loose teas. I am not sure if it is available in a tea bag option, but if you don’t mind using a tea ball strainer, you can get at least 3 or 4 good infusions (i.e. separate cups of tea) from one scoop of this tea. All of Tealightful Treasures teas are high quality loose teas, and none yield less than 3 good infusions. I don’t steep my tea very long, however. I just dip the ball strainer up and down until the liquid turns a deep golden brown, then I set the strainer aside and drink my tea with a little milk or half and half. I’m not sure of the exact temperature, but the instructions on the package recommend bringing the water to a full boil before you add the tea, and the recommended steeping time is 5 to 7 minutes. I’m probably a 1 to 2 minute steeper, generally. I don’t like to steep long, because I enjoy getting more than one cup out of my leaves. :)
