FAQ

What’s the best way to prepare tea /botanicals?

Use filtered water.
Boil at the required temperature for Black, Green [at 175] or Herbal
Steep tea and remove tea bag sachet. Do not over-steep or leave the tea-bag sachet in your cup/tea pot as this will cause a bitter flavor. Generally steep to taste. Never use boiling water to prep Green Tea or leave your bag inside [a big no-no].

Why isn't your packaging color coded?

We feel that color coding as a design is a bit boring and commercial. We've kept it black and white and simple with a mountain goat hanging from your cup to remind you to keep pushing forward.
