Black Tea


Black tea is fermented before being dried or fired.  This allows the tea to oxidise, giving black teas their deep colour and rich flavour.

 

Brew using boiling water (tap water or filtered water) and allow the tea leaves to infuse for 3-5 minutes.

Green Tea


Green tea is not withered or fermented after picking.  The leaves are generally steamed and fired. As is is the least processed, it has the reputation of being the most healthy of teas. Lighter and more subtle in flavour than black tea.

 

Green tea should be brewed using water at 80deg. This means letting the boiled kettle stand for around 5 minutes after it has boiled.

 

Allow tea leaves to infuse for around a minute, then remove leaves from the pot.  

 

Green teas can be brewed multiple times.  Allow a slightly longer brewing time for each brew.
