How do I prepare the tea optimally?

FAQ-Beitrag

It all depends on the variety. Therefore, you can find the info you need on the product page and the products themselves.

However, here are some basic tips:

The water should always be fresh. Optimally, the water has been filtered – but of course this is not a must. For temperatures, you can use the following table as a guide:

TypeWater temperature
Black tea100°
Green tea and white tea70°
Herbal, fruit and rooibos tea100°
Oolong85°C-95°C

Herbal, fruit and rooibos teas should steep for about 8 minutes, while for green and white teas and oolong, the brewing time may be reduced to about 2-5 minutes.

Tip: To influence the taste ideally for you, you can turn two screws. This is, on the one hand, the amount of tea you use for the infusion and, on the other hand, the infusion time. The more tea and the longer it brews, the more intense the flavor. However, you cannot extend the infusion time indefinitely, as green and black teas in particular will otherwise become bitter. Just take our preparation instructions for the individual items as a starting point to meet your taste better and better, bit by bit with small changes. Good luck!

I do not have a thermometer. How do I know when the infusion temperature has been reached?2022-04-26T13:04:45+02:00

We do recommend that you use a kettle with a thermostat or a tea water thermometer – but this is not a mandatory requirement. You can also use two rules of thumb to guide you:

First method: Wait and see

To do this, boil 1L of water in the kettle and wait for the times indicated below with the lid closed:

80° for oolongs & white teas – approx. 20 minutes

70° for green teas – about 25 minutes

Second method: recasting

Each time you transfer the water to another vessel, the water loses about 10 degrees in temperature.

80° for oolongs & white teas – 2 times repouring

70° for green teas – 3-4 times repouring

How can I dispose of the cans?2022-04-26T13:07:01+02:00

Please dispose of the cans in the paper trash. There, the paper fibers can be recycled and you give new life to the raw material.

How can I return items?2022-02-23T13:01:39+01:00

If you want to return items, just send us an email and we will take care of it right away.

Can I infuse the teas more than once?2022-03-19T20:43:15+01:00

With many teas, this works. Exceptions are herbal and fruit teas. We show you within the description on the respective product page with the multiple infusion symbol indicates that this tea is suitable.

Generally, the more often you infuse a tea, the longer you should let the infusion steep.

For green and black teas, 3-4 infusions are usually very good. If additives such as jasmine flowers are in the tea, certain flavor nuances may be lost.
