Brewing Suggestions: 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 6 oz. to 8 oz. of boiling water. For starters, try steeping 3 min. to 5 min. The longer you steep, there is the possibility that the tea will taste bitter. But if you prefer a stronger taste, try steeping up to 7 min. Adjust accordidngly and steep to taste. Remember, a little goes a long way.
