BREWING, TEA FACTS
Before you start to brew a tea purchased at our shop, please check the recommendations printed on the packing bag of each tea. They are specific to each variety, including water temperature and hot /iced brewing methods. For the best aroma and inviting colour of your cup we strongly recommend the use of distilled demineralized water, or at least freshly boiled filtered water, which doesn't contain a large addition of fluoride and has pH 7 or more (alkaline). Do not boil the same water twice.
Do not wash inner parts of a teapot with any soap.
Store your teas in glass containers with a tight closer, in cool place and away from direct light, to maintain their freshness, full body, and aroma.
How To Brew: Heat water to boiling. Warm the teapot or an individual cup with a small amount of hot water. Toss out this water and then add the tea leaves to the teapot or cup. Pour boiling water over the tea ( for some teas, if recommended, cool the boiling water for a minute before brewing ). Enjoy your tea time!

 

TURKISH COFFEE IN COPPER CEZVE. Photography © WISE TEA GARDEN®.   TURKISH COFFEE
Recipe © WISE TEA GARDEN®


To make the most delicious Turkish Coffee, we would recommend to use ASHANTI® Medium Roast. You will also need distilled water, a small copper cezve (1 cup - 250ml), Organic Maple sugar (optional) and ground organic cardamom.

1. Put 25 g of finely ground Ashanti in cezve. Add 10 ml of Maple sugar (optional) and a pinch (2g) of ground organic cardamom.
2. Add 200 ml of fresh cold distilled water (the water should be fresh, not boiled previously). Stir well for a minute or so.
3. Put cezve on a stove and heat slowly (on a medium heat, for about 4-5 min). As soon as starts to boil, remove from heat and stir a little bit, very gently.
4. Heat again. As soon as just start to boil - remove from heat. Stir gently. And one more time: Heat, remove, and finally pour into a cup(s) - please don't stir this time!
5. Cover the cup(s) with a saucer, let it brew a bit more for about 2 minutes.

Enjoy one of the most awesome coffee in the world!
