Tea Making Tips
You can store tea bags or loose tea at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 years. Be sure to keep each kind or flavor of tea separate storage containers.
To make the perfect cup of tea, pour boiling water over one tea bag or a tea infuser containing 1 teaspoon of loose tea. Allow to steep for 3-5 minutes or until the desired strength had been reached. Remove the bag or infuser.
"Quick" iced tea can be made by pouring 4 cups boiling water over eight tea bags in a heat-resistant container. Cover and steep 3-5 minutes. Remove bags and sweeten if desired. Add 4 cups cold water or ice. Chill until ready to serve.
