Shaking the envelope
It sounds funny but shaking the envelope before tearing is really important. Our large tea bags can shift around in the envelope and you might tear the paper if you don’t shake first. You’ll quickly find it becomes a habit and you won’t give it a second thought!
Water quality and temperature
Start with filtered water if it is available since chemicals like chlorine (which is added to most public water) can affect the taste. Use freshly boiled water to extract all the goodness from Teeccino’s herbs.
3X more herbs
Teeccino tea bags hold 6 grams of herbs compared to standard tea bags that hold 1 - 2 grams. Teeccino’s full-bodied flavor depends on this quantity of ingredients, but it makes our tea bags heavier especially when they’re wet. When removing them from your cup, strings can come loose. You can always support the tea bag with a spoon to prevent this from happening.
Extracting the most flavor out of your tea bag
We recommend gently dunking the tea bags a few times in freshly boiled water and leaving the tea bag in your cup for at least 3 minutes. In fact, there is no harm in leaving the tea bag in your mug while you sip – your Teeccino will not become more bitter; it will just become more flavourful!
