WHY DRINK LOOSE LEAF TEA?

Loose leaf tea is better for you than bagged tea. Loose leaf tea utilizes whole tea leaves, fruits, herbs and spices allowing the full flavor and health benefits of each ingredient to steep into your cup. For bagged tea, the tea leaves and ingredients have to be chopped into tiny pieces in order to fit into a small tea bag. Whenever bagged tea is chopped up finely like that, it gives the leaf more surface area. And with that surface area comes more space for the health benefits and flavor to be released immediately into the air. Loose leaf tea, on the other hand, is not chopped up like that. It stays whole and therefore holds onto all of the flavor and health benefits until it unfurls and releases it into your cup. Not only do you get stronger flavor and more natural health benefits with loose leaf tea, but you also eliminate the waste of a tea bag, string, staple, etc making loose leaf tea better for you and for the environment. Once you go loose, you never go bagged.

FUNCTIONAL SEGMENTATION

We segment our teas down into five functional categories based on each tea’s natural health benefits. This way, you can choose your tea based on what you need it to do for you and then pick a flavor profile within that function that fits your taste. This gives you a natural way to energize, slenderize, boost antioxidants, boost immunity and relax.

BLACK TEA - MATE TEA

BLACK TEA - MATE TEA

These are our black and mate teas. These teas are high in caffeine and help you deal with fatigue by giving you an added mental and physical boost. Black tea also has the benefits of L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in tea, that is known for increasing mental focus and cognitive performance. The energy from black tea also provides a more steady increase and decrease of energy, meaning you’re safe from the typical crash and jitters that coffee and other energy drinks leave you with.

HOW TO BREW LOOSE LEAF TEA

Brewing loose leaf tea is just three easy steps. First things first, you’ll need a mug, hot water, your loose leaf tea and an infuser/steeper. Your infuser can be anything that will strain the leaves from your hot water. If you have a tea ball, tea basket, tea pot or French press, any of those work great.

HOT TEA

1.5 TSP TEA PER 8 OZ HOT WATER

STEEP BASED ON TEA TYPE

The great thing about loose leaf tea is you can customize it to fit your taste. You can always brew a tea stronger or weaker depending on how you like it. We recommend starting with 1.5 teaspoons of tea for every 8 oz of hot water and adjusting from there.

ICED TEA

1 TBSP TEA PER 8 OZ HOT WATER

STEEP BASED ON TEA TYPE

If you’re making iced tea, our rule of thumb is “double the dosage”, so use a Tablespoon of tea for every 8 oz of hot water. Brew it up hot, steep according to the tea type and then pour it over ice. We recommend doubling the dosage so that the flavor you love is just as strong when you pour it over ice.

COLD BREW TEA

1 TBSP TEA PER 8 OZ COLD WATER

STEEP FOR 2 HOURS

For cold brew, we also recommend at least a Tablespoon of tea for every 8 oz of cold water. To cold brew, add your tea to your cold water container (our favorite for cold brewing is our Flash Chiller) and let it steep in the fridge for at least 2 hrs. You can steep it overnight if you’d like to have a cup of cold brew waiting for you in the morning too.

WATER TEMPERATURE & STEEP TIMES ARE IMPORTANT

If you’ve ever had a tea that you thought was too strong or too bitter, chances are that it was steeped for too long or the water was too hot. This is especially true for green and black teas as they have more tannins that can taste bitter when brewed incorrectly. To get the best flavor out of every cup, follow the guidelines provided here:

TEA TYPE TEMP STEEP
Green Tea......... 175°F....... 1-3 min
White Tea......... 175°F....... 3-5 min
Black Tea......... 195°F....... 3-5 min
Oolong Tea........ 195°F....... 3-5 min
Herbal Tea........ 208°F....... 5-7 min
Rooibos Tea....... 208°F....... 5-7 min
Maté Tea........... 208°F....... 5-7 min
Fruit Tea............ 208°F....... 5-7 min

We also offer a few of our favorite brewing utilities. Tea filters are our version of a DIY tea bag that are perfect for when you are on the go. For these, you simply fill them with your favorite loose leaf tea, fold over the top and drop it in your mug. The bag will automatically seal when it gets wet, so you can walk out the door and toss it in the garbage or compost while on the move.

The Brewmaster is our crowd-favorite brewing accessory. Our Brewmaster’s innovative technology makes brewing loose tea simple: just scoop your tea, add hot water, steep, and place the bottom of the Brewmaster on your mug! The Brewmaster releases your tea into the mug while holding onto all of the tea leaves. Added bonus: it is microwave safe and dish washer friendly!

TOP SELLER REVIEWS

THESE ARE A FEW OF
OUR FAVORITE TEAS

Maui Mango is by far my favorite! This is a full-flavored fruit tea packed with citrus and mango, and it has the perfect amount of sweetness so you don't have to add any sweeteners. I love that you can actually make out the ingredients in Tiesta Teas tea blends as they are not ground down or artificially flavored. I highly recommend this tea blend and Tiesta Teas!

I love this tea blend. I simply add it to a reusable tea infuser or my tea infuser bottle and let it cold brew. Such a wonderful flavor that I don’t have to sweeten it or add anything to it besides water. By far my fave go to drink for the day.

This is the ONLY tea I've ever tried in my life that actually helped relieve stress and gave me a good nights sleep. And I've tried many other teas off the shelf. Wow! I couldn't believe that after drinking 2 cups of tea I felt the tension melt away and got one of the best nights of sleep I've had in a long time. This stuff seemed to have the power of a prescription drug. Without the harmful side effects of popping a pill. I'm a fan of these guys. I'm finally a believer. Thanks for putting together this awesome blend!

Caffeine free and DELICOUS! I had to give it a try. I can't get over how fragrant this tea is and it tastes as good as it smells. I love the chunks of fruit that come to life when you add your hot water. I feel I have to add nothing else to this tea in order to enjoy it. I look forward to trying some of the other flavors available!
