Tea Brewing Instructions for Rooibos Tea

Our instructions are only general guidelines. For your ultimate enjoyment please experiment with the steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves.

Basic Rooibos Tea Brewing Instruction

  1. Measure the desired amount of tea leaves and place into a teapot or teacup. Use 1 tsp or 2.3g of tea leaves for every 8oz (1 cup) of water.
  2. Bring the water to a rolling boil at 212oF (100oC).
  3. Add enough hot water to submerse the tea leaves and let it sit for a few seconds before pouring out the water. Warming the tea leaves and teaware allow for a better brew.
  4. Add boiling water and let the tea leaves steep for 3 to 5 minutes.

    Note: Adding sugar or honey is optional.
