Lets Talk About That Grind

The ideal consistency of your ground coffee depends mainly on what type of brewing method you are going to use. Small changes in grind size can drastically affect the taste of your final brew. Trial and error will give you your perfect consistency based on your brewing method and preference.
If you brew coffee that is ground too coarse, the coffee can be under-extracted (weak) and less flavorful.
If your coffee is ground too fine, the coffee can be over-extracted and bitter.

Why choose our loose leaf teas over “bag” teas ?

Loose Leaf Tea vs Tea Bag Tea

Loose leaf tea is 100% natural, unprocessed and contains numerous health properties and antioxidants, they contain many nutrients and essential oils. These leaves provide more flavor, aroma and freshness due to the whole leaf being used. Loose leaf, high-quality grade tea produces subtle nuances and flavors that are allowed to expand fully in hot water. Loose leaf teas are generally produced seasonally in small quantities that involves hand-picking and hand-sorting quality tea leaves.
Additionally, the same leaves can be steeped multiple times for several cups of tea!

The tea found in most bags are typically a low tea grade, they are actually the dust and fannings from broken tea leaves. This is a huge difference in quality from loose leaf tea as broken tea leaves have lost most of their essential oils and aroma. Tea in tea bags are usually commercially prepared and picked. When steeped, they release more tannin than loose leaf tea, resulting in a bitter cup of tea. Tea bags are generally only steeped once.
