HOW TO USE IT
Place the tea bag at the bottom of the cup and pour the hot water on top to your desired level. Freshly boiled water, rested for a 2-3 minutes so the temperature drops to 60-85°C, is the ideal heat for when you pour. Steep for 3-5 minutes and drink.
Make your own flavours by adding ginger, honey, sugar, or cream. Chill and serve cold over ice with fresh mint or lemon.
