Cold brew recommendations

Any tea can be cold brewed for iced tea, though we recommend medium to darker roasted teas for cold brew. 
Cold brewing iced tea is relatively simple. Put 10 grams of loose leaf tea into 1 liter of filtered (delicious) water, stir and refrigerate for 24 hours. Strain & enjoy the next day!

 

Storing the teas without a tin

The best way to preserve tea is to keep it away from direct light, heat, moisture, odor and air.
If you don't have a metal tin, put the tea in any air tight canisters. Otherwise, use a strong rubber band to tie together the metalized foiled bag and store in its original box. Ensure the tea is kept away from direct light and heat once it's nicely sealed from air and moisture.

 

About caffeine

A cup of oolong tea (generally) contains a quarter the amount of caffeine compared to a cup of coffee. Though, every tea is different based on processing method and tea plant varietals.
