Bourbon is a street like no other! Nestled in the heart of the French Quarter (New Orleans' oldest neighbourhood), jazz music spills from every doorway with crowds parading up and down the street under a blaze of neon. Smooth Bourbon Vanilla pays homage to the vibrance of this invigorating seen.

A dash of rooibos (South African's red tea), symbolizes the hot Louisiana sun, while hints of French vanilla represents New Orleans’ rich history. Spicy star anise jazz’s it up, while cornflower and camomile petals add a splash of vibrant colour. Et voila! The results are the cup you are about to enjoy - bright, lively and unforgettable.

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF

 

HOT BREWING METHOD: 
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

 

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (PITCHER): (TO MAKE 1 LITRE/QUART): 
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and to be expected.)

 

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (INDIVIDUAL SERVING): 
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the tea. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and to be expected.)

 

FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea.

 

ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.

SAFETY PRECAUTION: Practice caution ALWAYS when handling hot/boiled water to prevent burns.  ALWAYS USE TEMPERED GLASS/HEAT RESISTANT CUPS/PITCHERS/GLASSES/CERAMICS OR ANY SERVING WARE DEEMED SAFE FOR HOT BEVERAGES.
