Steeping instructions

Steeping instructions Bamboo tea
For every person you put 1 gram Bamboo leaves in a pot and pour boiling water (90-100°C) on them.
Depending on how strong you like your tea, steep for 6-8 minutes.
Bamboo leaves can be used 1 to 2 times. Drink this tea slightly cooled so its aroma comes out best.
Also, cold Bamboo tea is considered a good thirst quencher.

Steeping instructions Green tea
For one cup of tea you need one teaspoon of green tea.
It is better not to use a tea ball since the leaves cannot unfold properly and the flavour of the tea is not optimum.
Use hot water for green tea (60 to 80 °C) and not boiling since the taste will be bitter.

Steep green tea for 2-3 minutes, not longer.
Another method: pour hot water of approx. 70 °C on the leaves and then immediately pour off the water.
Then pour hot water on them again. The bitter substances have then gone and the tea has a milder aroma.

Steeping instructions Rooibos tea
For one cup of you need approx. 2 gram Rooibos tea.
Pour boiling water on the tea and steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on your taste.

Steeping instructions White tea
There are many different ways in which to brew white tea: the Chinese put the tea leaves in the water and then pour boiling water on them several times.
We on the other hand take hot water of 60 to 80 °C and steep the tea for 2-3 minutes. 
In all cases counts: the better the quality of the white tea, the more often you can use the tea.

Suggestion for summer: Iced-tea! 

On a hot summer day you can create your own iced-tea of a fruit blend by using the so-called 'shock brew' method.
Colour and aroma are well preserved like this.
Prepare a double strong fruit blend and pour this in a glass half full of ice cubes.
You can serve the drink immediately or put it in the fridge to keep cool.
