Steep It Up: How to High Tea

Steep It Up: How to High Tea

Brewing loose leaf tea may seem pretty straight forward, but in fact it takes precision to make it properly. The right portion of tea in combination with the ideal temperature of hot water and just enough time steeping all play a vital role in a well balanced and expertly brewed cup of tea.

How to Brew High Tea
To start, lump 1 rounded teaspoon per 12 ounces of water of your favourite tea blend into a sachet or infuser. Then set your water to boil until the ideal temperature. Loose leaf teas can be sensitive to boiling temperatures, so take care not to burn your tea by following the guide below.

Black Tea - 100ºC | Oolong Tea - 90ºC | Green Tea - 79ºC | White Tea - 85ºC | Herbal Tea - 100ºC

After you've combined the tea and water allow it to steep for just the right amount of minutes. This is a matter of preference, but if you like a strong, bitter or bold flavour leave the bag in. Follow the guide below if you want to steep your game up to a properly brewed cup of tea.

Black Tea - 5-6 | Oolong Tea - 3-4 | Green Tea - 3-4 | White Tea - 3-4 | Herbal Tea - 5-6

Now all that's left to do is grab a biscuit or two, kick back and chill. If you want to sip in style, shop our selection of tea steeping systems and mugs by clicking HERE.

Our new year's resolution for 2015 is to EAT MORE GLUTEN. After 2+ years of offering gluten-free treats, we figured that it's time for Room 2046 Cafe to serve some delicious gourmet donuts. This season, we're bringing Parkdale's finest, Glory Hole Doughnuts to our Summerhill 'hood, north of Bloor of Toronto.
