I do not have a thermometer. How do I know when the infusion temperature has been reached?

FAQ-Beitrag

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 do I prepare the tea optimally?2022-06-27T21:25:33+02:00

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!

How will my order be shipped?2022-04-26T13:06:36+02:00

We use the market leader DHL for shipping larger packages. We send smaller shipments cost-efficiently with Deutsche Post. When shipping with the German Post, we can unfortunately not provide you with tracking.

Whether by DHL or Deutsche Post: Shipping is guaranteed to be climate neutral.

Can I also pick up the order?2022-04-26T13:05:56+02:00

Sorry, this is not possible at the moment!

Why does some packaging contain plastic?2023-11-12T16:46:56+01:00

For some articles you will find a note that the packaging contains a certain amount of plastic. We want to be absolutely honest and have therefore added this clear note:

But what is it all about? First of all, this plastic packaging does not come from us. True Tea will never add its own plastic packaging. If you see this notice, it means that the packaging from our supplier contains plastic.

This can be for various reasons, for example to protect the surface of the product or to prevent breakage. We are in constant contact with our suppliers in order to constantly reduce the proportion of plastic or even replace it completely with alternative materials.

We draw your attention to this fact with the notice shown above. We hope that this information will help you with your product selection.

What is the minimum order value?2022-08-02T11:25:34+02:00

With us you can order from 9,90€ – from 34,90€ the shipping is even free. Below that we charge 4,99€ shipping costs.

What makes the bags so sustainable?2023-05-07T00:16:31+02:00

Our refill bags always hold at least twice the filling quantity of a Tin. So you can conveniently refill them. The bags are garden compostable and plastic-free. On the compost they become food for microorganisms. A clean sweep, from start to finish, that is.

Why is your company called True Tea?2022-06-02T23:20:46+02:00

The name should be program. Because we want to provide you with truly good and honest sustainable products – without compromise.

We are so serious about this promise that we have given ourselves the appropriate name. We are True Tea!

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.

Do I need a True Tea account to place an order?2023-05-21T23:14:38+02:00

No, you can order without an account. However, an account has many advantages. You can manage all your orders through our website and collect 2 TT Points per 1 € of sales with every purchase. You can then redeem them for discounts.

What is the best way to store tea?2023-05-07T00:19:46+02:00

Tea should be stored airtight in a cool, dry place protected from the sun. Tea quickly takes on foreign odors – so always remember to seal your bag or Tin properly. Of course, this also applies to matcha.

Very important: Do not store flavored teas next to non-flavored ones. If your precious green tea Gyokuru is next to our Ibiza, it may taste like mango.
