How should I store loose leaf tea?
Store your loose leaf tea in its airtight container to protect the leaves from air and moisture. To avoid spoiling the leaves or reducing their potent flavour, we also recommend storing your T2 tin in a dry environment away from direct sunlight. Aim to use your tea within a reasonable timeframe to maintain its freshness and vibrant flavour profile.
How long does loose leaf tea last?
Generally speaking, most loose leaf tea has a shelf life of around six months to two years; however, you can extend its lifespan by storing your blend in its airtight container, away from moisture and strong odours. If you notice the aroma or flavour no longer packs a punch, this is a telltale sign it’s time to purchase a fresh batch of loose leaf tea.
How much loose leaf tea do I add per cup?
It usually depends on the strength you enjoy and the type of tea you’re brewing. However, you can use approximately one to two teaspoons of loose leaf tea per 240 ml cup of water. It’s important to note that some loose leaf teas can expand during the steeping process, so using a large infuser or teapot will allow the leaves to better release their intense flavour profile. If you’re unsure what brew strength you enjoy, try experimenting with various tea-to-water ratios and steeping times to find the perfect balance.
