brewing-information  Brewing Information

Brewing Tips: Organic Ceylon tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Organic Ceylon tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

    This is my favorite black tea. I've tried most of Wendell tea black offerings and I love this one. The flavor, aroma, and color are lovely.


    How can there be only one review of this beautiful tea? I simply have never had anything better, period. And it is organic as well, which is essential these days. Clarity of flavor, bright, and smooth.


    This is a rich, malty tea that stands up well to milk or is just as good plain. Not my favorite black tea, but I am enjoying every cup.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does it take for my order to ship?

    We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.

    Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?

    All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.

    Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.

    How long does tea stay fresh?

    If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.

    How long should I brew my tea?

    Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
