Getting the most out of your tea 101

One of the coolest parts about having awesome tea is that you can steep the leaves over and over and over. All Wendigo Teas can be brewed four times or more. This makes for a very economical way to brew massive batches of tea.

Example 1: The Economical Host

step one- Heat your water to the right temperature and get out the proper amount of tea that your tea steeping device can handle (usually 1 tsp. per 8 oz. water).

step two- Place tea in a tea steeping device (teapot, french press, stepping mug, EZbrew).

step three- Pour water over leaves and wait suggested brew time. Then immediately separate the leaves from the liquid tea you just made.

step four- Pour your fresh brewed tea into a pitcher.

step five- Bring your water back up to the right tempeture.

repeat steps three to five until you have as much tea as you want.

 

** note that each successive brew has less caffeine and loses a little bit of the boldness so you are creating an average of all those brews you made so your final product will be approximately half the caffeine per cup unless you brew it the next way. **

 

Example 2: The Straight Ballin Host

step one- Heat your water to the right temperature and get out the proper about of tea that your tea steeping device can handle (usually 1 tsp. per 8 oz. water).

step two- Place tea in a tea steeping device (teapot, french press, stepping mug, EZbrew).

step three- Pour water over leaves and wait suggested brew time. Then immediately separate the leaves from the liquid tea you just made.

step four- Pour your fresh brewed tea into a pitcher.

step five- Bring your water back up to the right tempeture.

step six- Add another 1-2 tsp. of tea leaves into teapot

repeat steps 3-6 until you have as much tea as you want.

** note this will guarantee a full strength flavor and caffein level for a huge batch of tea. **

    Wendigo is not only the most cost effective and trustworthy tea I’ve found, it’s also the basis of my new obsession: equal parts Wendigo Green Tea, Nessy Tea, and a section of peeled ginger, steeped, sweetened with honey, and poured over ice! Thank you Sky!

    My first Hoard has just arrived! Wow. Wow. Wow. I haven’t even steeped yet — I am so blown by the quick shipping, the care-filled boxing, the FANTASIC packaging (Mat’s designs are fabulous, especially the Wendigo; the interlocking canister will be a treasured heirloom; the golden ribbon opener is effin brilliant) and the tea…the tea smells so intense, gorgeous, and fresh, I want to gnosh it right out of the cans.

    So excited to steep, sip, and sigh ahhhh…..

    Congrats!
