FAQs of Our Tea
What is cold brew tea?
Cold brew tea is tea steeped in cold or room temperature water for an extended period of time.
The process brews the tea leaves slowly, using time rather than temperature to release the flavors.
Why shall I drink cold brew tea?
Cold brewing tea is known to gently extract flavors from the tea itself, allowing for a truer tasting tea.
Hot brewing can scorch the tea, destroying any natural benefits as well as creating a bitter tasting tea.
Cold brewed tea is shown to have higher amounts of antioxidants when compared to hot brewed.
Why your tea is "Best with Cold Brew"?

Can I refill more water with one packet of tea leaves?
Yes. In general, you can refill your carafe with more water at least twice with one packet of tea leaves.
We recommend you refill the bottle when you still have ¼-⅓ left. This can help cold-brewed tea to maintain a consistent taste.
How long does it take to make a perfect cold-brew tea with your tea?
Thanks to the high quality of our tea leaves, using our tea leaves to make cold-brew tea takes much shorter time.
In room temperature, after around 2 hours, it will be ready to drink.
With cold water in a fridge, after around 4 hours, it will be ready to serve. In the cold temperature of fridge, we recommend you allow the tea leaves stay over a night.
💡 The longer time tea leaves stay in the water, the heavier the taste will be. The hours mentioned above are only recommendations. You can adjust it according to your preference to heavier taste or lighter taste.

To get the best taste, we recommend you to put 1-1.5L water with one bag of our tea leaves when you make cold-brewing.
How long can cold-brewed tea stay?
Cold-brewed tea in fridge can stay for 2 days, after that we recommend you to change a new bag of tea leaves. This means if you cold brew tea in fridge, you can use one bag for two days with at least twice refilling.
Cold brew tea staying in room temperature should be finished in one day.
What kind of bottle shall I have for cold brew tea?
We recommend you to use glass carafe to make cold brew tea. With glass carafe, you can also easily appreciate the different shapes of tea leaves as well.
Plastic and ceramic bottle is also possible.
Stainless Steel and aluminium bottles are not recommended because the taste of tea will be effected during long time cold-brewing.
If you want to use metal bottle, we suggest you use a one that is made of pure titanium or silver .
