Loose Leaf Rooibos Tea - The Cove Tea Company - Edmonton Alberta

How do I prepare my favourite loose leaf tea?

Enjoying a beautiful cup of tea is a personal experience. Finding that perfect taste experience is the part of the craft and joyful part of the journey.

Each of our tea labels suggests our general steeping guidelines for that particular loose leaf tea.

For fine loose leaf teas, a level teaspoon of leaves will steep an 8-ounce cup of tea. The fuller, fluffier teas – Peachy Afternoon, Spicy White Guava, and Heavenly Bloom for example – use a rounded tablespoon of leaves for an 8-ounce cup of tea.

If you enjoy a stronger cup of tea, we highly suggest adding more tea leaves to your tea infuser while sticking to the recommended steeping time to avoid bitterness from over-steeping your tea.
