How to Steep:
1st cup: I steep my first cup of hot tea in a french press for 5 minutes. Just add 1 tsp of your favourite blend and add 1 cup of boiling water. After 5 minutes press the leaves and your 1st cup of Tea loaded with the benefits of Curcumin is ready to sip.
2nd cup: After I have poured it in my cup I add 1 more cup of hot water to the french press and let it steep while I am enjoying my my first cup (~ 8-10 minutes).
3rd and 4th cup: I pour all the loose leaf tea and about two cups of water in a mason jar and store it in the fridge for a cold brew to enjoy after work.
