Updated: Jan 18

Learn how to make a cup of tea, fit for a king or queen. It may sound simple, but the little details can make a big difference.

Tea leaves come in five styles, which are broken down by how the leaves are dried, rolled, and made ready to drink:


  • Black tea

  • Green tea

  • Herbal tea


Nearly all (90 percent) of the tea we drink is a blend, many of which include flowers, berries, spices, or other flavors to achieve their final taste. All of the loose leaf teas and pyramid-bag tea within our ranges can be brewed using the following methods:


How to Make Tea Using a Tea Bag

We'll start with possibly the easiest option for how to make tea: Using a pyramid-bag.

  2. Bring fresh, cold water to a rolling boil.

  3. Once boiling, pour over the tea bag and steep according to the timing above based on your tea variety.

  4. Remove the pyramid bag from your cup.

  5. Finish with milk, your preferred sweetener (such as sugar, honey, agave, or stevia) or a slice of citrus.

How to Make Loose-Leaf Tea

If you choose loose-leaf tea, you'll need a tea infuser of sorts. These may come inside your teapot, or you can buy a single-serving tea infuser to pop inside a single cup.


  1. Fill the infuser with the amount of tea specified on the package for how many servings you need.

  2. Bring fresh, cold water to a rolling boil.

  3. Once boiling, pour over the tea infuser (or lower the infuser into the pot) and steep according to the timing above based on your tea variety.

  4. Remove the tea infuser from the cup or pot.

  5. If needed, finish with milk, your preferred sweetener, or a slice of citrus.
