Brewing instructions: Often green teas like Jasmine tea can taste overly bitter if brewed incorrectly. The key to brewing this great cup of jasmine green tea is to remember that "Less is more!" Less tea, less temperature, less time!
Use 1 teaspoon of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag per cup. Brew for only 2-3 mins at 80-85ºC. This will help avoid any bitterness, and instead will bring out the beautifully smooth sweetness of the green tea.
So how do you get the correct temperature? If you don't have a temperature controlled kettle, just let your kettle cool down or add a small amount of cold water when brewing - fill your cup (or pot) with about one quarter cold water and three quarters boiling water, to give you a great temperature for brewing. Then add your tea leaves, and brew. Best without milk and use filtered water if you can. Once you've had your first cup you can also add more water over the tea leaves to enjoy a second infusion.

Teasup 1 Breakfast Blend - 1,000g loose leaf
Our signature, award-winning English Breakfast Tea. The key is the speciality tea leaves - fine-plucked, high grown, smallholder tea from the best planting districts around Mt Kenya, high grown tea from the the Gisovu Tea Estate in Rwanda, and premium second flush Assam leaves from the Hunwal Tea Estate in India. The result is a rich, full-bodied tea with a lovely golden colour. Strength and briskness comes from the East African teas, balanced with the maltiness of Assam. Great with a dash of milk and a perfect way to start your day. Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Good to know fun fact: The first English breakfast blend actually comes from America! In 1843, Richard Davies, an English apothecary from Hull who had founded a small tea company in New York, made a new mix of tea that he called “English Breakfast”, and the people loved it! Food pairing: Extremely versatile and perfect with breakfast, whether its English or Continental, cakes or chocolate.
