You already know how to steep tea but did you know that loose leaf teas are meant to be re-steeped?
One of the many advantages of choosing loose leaf over tea bags is enjoying multiple steeps of each brew. Why re-steep you ask? Here are three benefits you get when you re-steep your tea:
THREE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD RE-STEEP YOUR TEA
1. SAVE MONEY
A common misconception is that loose leaf tea is too expensive. In reality, it takes a very small amount of loose leaves to brew a cup of tea and the same leaves can be used for multiple infusions. When you re-steep your tea, you’re getting 2 to 3+ cups for the price of one. A home-brewed, re-steeped cup of high quality tea easily costs less than $0.40/cup. This isn’t a cheap way to make tea last longer but rather the intended way for loose leaf tea to be enjoyed to its fullest potential.
2. WASTE LESS
No one likes to waste a good cup of tea. But that’s exactly what happens when you steep tea once and then throw away the leaves. Whole loose leaves retain their flavors and aromas much better than crushed tea leaves; so, they are capable of revealing new flavors with two, three, or more steeps. Don’t let your delicious tea go to waste. Enjoy multiple infusions.
3. EXPERIENCE MORE
One of the main joys of making a cup of tea is delighting in the full sensory experience. Exciting flavors, soothing aromas, and invigorating warmth in every sip. When the first cup of tea is fabulous, it’s hard to imagine it getting any better than that. But the key to unlocking even more delicious and surprising flavor notes is re-steeping. The same brew can offer totally different and new flavors, aromas, and colors to relish from one steep to the next. Conversely, if the first cup isn’t your favorite, re-steep the leaves and you may find a new set of tasting notes that satisfy your palate.
ENJOY YOUR CUP OF TEA AGAIN AND AGAIN
Re-steeping is essential to enjoying the full experience of tea while maximizing the flavor in your cup. Discover the world of tea with every sip as you explore the amazing range of textures, tastes, and aromas in each steep.
