This delightfully spicy black tea is a standard in Seattle, a favorite in San Francisco, and a must-have here in Kansas City during the holiday season. Market Spice is loaded with essential oils of orange, cloves, cinnamon.
Amount of Tea: 2 teaspoons for a single. To re-brew the same leaves, use a generous tablespoon. The more tea leaves you use, the more pronounced the spice flavor will become.
Steeping Time: 4-5 minutes. The longer you steep the tea, the stronger the spice flavor will become. This tea can have a very strong flavor if brewed for a long time, which is exactly to some people’s taste! If you want to serve it iced, brewing it strong is recommended, because as the ice melts it will water down the tea.
Water Temperature: 190 degrees F. Allow boiling water to cool for about 2 minutes.
