Ingredients: 100% Rooibos Tea
Preparation and Storage:
1 tablespoon per 8 ounces of water
Heat water to 210 degrees (just begin to boil)
Steep tea for 5 minutes
Store loose leaf teas in an airtight container away from light and heat.Kept in suggested conditions black tea can last 12 months. The oxidation process makes it suitable for longer-term storage as compared to other tea types. However, it is still advisable to restock often for premium flavor.
Though tea balls and strainers are often used for tea that isn't pre-bagged, ideal methods of infusing loose leaf teas employ strainers that allow for the tea leaves to completely unfurl and release their flavor. Teapots with removable strainers for tea will allow a fuller flavor.
Some tea enthusiasts dispense with using strainers altogether and drop leaves in the pot directly and then strain the tea when serving into cups. When employing this method be sure to pour out all tea or remaining liquid will get bitter from over-steeping.
The strength and flavor of tea is a personal preference
