Top tea-making tips

Use fresh and cool water

Use fresh, cool, oxygenated water. Never use tepid, long-standing, pre-heated or hot tap water.

Choose your favorite mug, cup or teapot

Once you've decided on the tea that matches your mood you now need to choose the perfect cup to drink it out of. We personally believe that the teacup is one of the most vital ingredients to a perfect cup of tea.


Where you store tea is important because it absorbs moisture and kitchen smells, which can affect the flavour.
