There's A Tea For Everyone...

Aloycia Woods


Start with flavors you already enjoy:

Fruity: If you enjoy fruity flavors, try teas like hibiscus, strawberry rooibos, or peach oolong. These teas are naturally sweet and can be a good introduction to the world of loose leaf tea.

Spicy: For those who like a bit of a kick, explore ginger tea, cinnamon chai, or peppermint tea. These teas have strong flavors that might be more familiar and enjoyable.

Chocolatey: If you're a chocolate lover, you might enjoy rooibos teas flavored with chocolate or vanilla.

Consider the brewing method: Temperature: Water temperature greatly affects the taste of tea. Use cooler water (around 70°C or 160°F) for green teas and white teas, and hotter water (around 90°C or 190°F) for black teas and oolongs.

Steeping time: Over-steeping can make tea bitter. Start with shorter steeping times (30 seconds to 2 minutes) and adjust based on your preference.
Explore different types of tea:

Don't be afraid to experiment! There are hundreds of loose leaf teas with unique flavor profiles. From floral jasmine to nutty oolong, there's a tea out there for everyone.

Enhance the experience: Use high-quality tea: Fresh, loose leaf tea blends and herbs generally tastes better than tea bags. Invest in a small amount of good quality loose leaf tea to explore.

Steep in a teapot or infuser: Using a teapot or infuser allows for better control over the brewing process and prevents loose leaves from ending up in your cup.

Sweeteners: If you prefer a sweeter tea, try natural sweeteners like honey or agave nectar. Start with a small amount and adjust to your taste.

Milk or cream: Some teas, like black teas, can be enjoyed with a splash of milk or cream, similar to coffee. Experiment to see what you prefer.

Be patient: Developing a taste for tea can take time. Keep trying different teas and brewing methods to find what you enjoy.
