PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
In a tea infuser, whether in a kettle or a cup, take 1-2 teaspoons of Pyur PH English Breakfast. Let steep in hot water for 3-5 minutes. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the flavor.
This tea is also incredible as cold brew. Place your tea infuser with 2-3 teaspoons of Pyur PH English Breakfast Tea (cold brew usually has more water, so more tea is needed) in a container of water, and place in the refrigerator for 6-12 hours. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the flavor.
This is a tea that works very well with milk and sugar. Add honey or sweetener, and a splash or so of milk, if you wish, for both hot and cold options.
TEA BAGS VS. LOOSE LEAF
Teabags are made of small pieces of tea, essentially tea leaves that have been broken down. This means that there is more opportunity for the essential oils that makes tea so flavorful and aromatic to evaporate. This will make the tea dull and stale. Teabags, especially those packed in paper boxes and paper wrapping, often have this problem in regards to freshness.
Loose-leaf tea, on the other hand, is not pre-bunched together in a bag. When steeping loose-leaf tea, there is more room for the leaves to absorb the hot water, and expand while they infuse. The water is then allowed to flow properly through the leaves, extracting all the flavor, aroma, vitamins, and minerals that the leaves have to offer.
Store your tea in odor-free, airtight containers. Keep them in a dry, dark place to avoid exposure to heat, excessive light, and humidity. Properly stored, teas will retain full potency and flavor for 18 to 24 months.
