The Perfect Cup of Tea

“…When Brewing and Picking Out the Safest Tea Remember These Tips:

1. Choose an Organic & Non-GMO certified brand of tea...

2. Check the ingredient list on the back of the tea package to make sure there are no added flavors, GMO ingredients like soy lecithin and corn starch added to the tea leaves.

3. Make sure the brand you buy uses a safe form of packaging material or buy loose tea and use a stainless steel or glass tea strainer.  Have the company verify that the bags do not contain epichlorophydrin, and avoid plastic tea bags all together…

4. The majority of restaurants use some of the most pesticide ridden tea and brands that have harmful packaging…Don’t fall victim to this.  Bring your own tea when eating out or going to restaurants and ask for a pot or cup of boiling water (remember to leave a good tip if you do this)….If you drink iced tea, brew your own at home and carry an insulated water bottle with you.

5. Remember these temps and times for brewing the perfect cup of tea:
