Back from the Tea Convention

While prior to COVID my wife and I enjoyed the Tea Convention, this time it was a bust. They combined our Tea Convention with a Bar and Club Convention. It was like combining oil and water. The speakers were top notch, but the networking and exhibits lacked in many ways. Suddenly it dawned on me, maybe there is a shortage of tea coming to America. There are CONEXs backed up in the system and prized boba tea products can take up to six months. Nevertheless, I will continue to strive to open and expand our tea business. Below is an article from ITI on how to brew various types of teas:


Make a perfect cup of Tea with these simple steps. Have you ever stopped to think about how you go about making a cup of tea? How long to let it steep or even how hot the water needs to be? Every tea requires its own steeping process, something most of the population in the world doesn’t even realize! Well you are in luck, below are our recommendations on how to brew the perfect cup of tea every time. Steeping Instructions:

  1. White Tea: 3 - 5 minutes steeping time, water temperature 165* - 170* F

  2. Japanese Green Tea: 1 - 3 minutes steeping time, water temperature 165* - 180* F

  3. Other Green Teas: 3 - 4 minutes, water temperature 175* - 185* F

  4. Oolong Tea: 3 - 5 minutes, water temperature 180* - 190* F

  5. Black Tea: 3 minutes, water temperature 212* F

  6. Pu-Erh Tea: 3 minutes, water temperature 212* F

  7. Rooibos and Herbal Infusions: 5 - 7 minutes, water temperature 212* F

  8. Blooming Tea: 5 minutes, water temperature 175* F - 185* F

  9. Yellow Tea: 3 - 4 minutes, water temperature 175* F - 185* F

  10. Purple Tea: 3 - 4 minutes, water temperature 175* F - 185 *F. In order to obtain the signature purple color, after steeping add a splash of lemon juice and watch the magical transition happen before your very eyes!
