Use the label color to help you brew! Steep your leaves with water no hotter than the recommended maximum brew temperature and wait until the liquor color matches.

We like brewing this by steeping in a vessel where water can circulate freely like a spacious teapot. After the initial steeps, try steeping the leaves overnight in the refrigerator for some delicious cold-brew iced tea!

We source this tea from Ms. Shiuwen who runs Floating Leaves Tea, a fabulous and captivating lady with a unique take on tea! She sources directly from talented farmers in Taiwan every season.
