Tea Legends

Thousands of years of legendary teas, in the bag! Speciality teas like these are usually only available as loose leaf. Our biodegradable pyramid tea bags make them a little easier to brew and carry around wherever you go. 

 

 


Prepare a legendary brew
We recommend you brew our delicate green Tea Legends at a lower temperature than usual. A temperate-controlled kettle is dandy if you have one. If you don’t, just follow this simple guide. You’ll be a ‘devotea’ in no time.

 


LONG JING
JASMINE DRAGON PEARLS

 

75-85°C water
 

Use fresh, ideally filtered, water for each brew.

Boil to 80°C. Green teas are delicate and will turn bitter if you scorch them with boiling water. You can also boil to 100°C and add 1/3 cold water to your cup before you add in your teabag.

Leave to brew for 3 minutes.

Discard teabag.

 


SENCHA GYOKURO
 

60-80°C water
 

Use fresh, ideally filtered, water for each brew.

In Japan, this top grade tea is typically brewed at 60°C, ideally by bringing to a full boil and letting it cool down. Give this method a try to achieve Gyokuro's maximum sweet umami flavour. If you prefer your tea hotter however, brew at a maximum of 80°C.

Leave to brew for 3 minutes.

Teabag can be re-used for a second brew.
