Brewing Guide

To ensure our tisanes are enjoyed at their best, care must be taken when brewing and that’s why we’ve come up with our very own guide and matrix.

Water

Bottled mineral water and standard tap water can be too hard (mineral-rich) depending on the source, which may leave your tea or tisane tasting metallic or harsh. Distilled water is too soft (low in minerals) which will brew into a bland tasting tea or tisane. Spring water is the optimal water for tea or tisanses, but some types are better than others. Spring water for tea or tisanes should be both neutral in pH (around pH7) and in flavour.

Multiple Infusions

Multiple infusions are less common in Western cultures, but the norm for traditional Chinese and Japanese brewing of green teas, oolong teas, and Pu-erh tea, and to some degree white tea. The exceptional quality of our herbal tisanes allow for multiple infusions, bringing out different flavours during each steep, and each one can become progressively longer.
