Brewing Instructions

Step 1: 1 tea sachet. Step 2: 12 oz of hot water. Step 3: 200F for black tea and pu-erh tea, 195F for oolong tea, and 185 for green tea and white tea. Step 3: Steep for 2-3 minutes.

Bamboo Tea Tool

Each order comes with a free bamboo tea tool, which can be used to hold the sachet string. When your tea is strong enough, simply pull the string up through the slot in the tool to suspend the tea bag out of the water.

A bamboo tool is laid across the top of a glass cup. The string of a sachet tea bag is threaded through a slot in the middle of the tool.
