Temperature

White teas and green teas are best at 70°C.  For black and oolong teas we use water around 85°C.  For herbal infusions we use 100°C water, and 70°C for chamomile. If you enjoy your tea with milk, we use slightly hotter water

Time

White Tea:  1 - 3 minutes. Black Tea: 45 seconds to a minute is ideal - if you want the strong tannins that blend so well with milk, try 2 - 3 minutes.

Green teas should be steeped for 1 - 2 minutes for the first infusion, and then shorter infusions after that.

Infusions

Our rare teas are of such high quality that the same leaves can be infused several times. Each time you infuse the tea different subtleties of the delicate flavours will be released.
