Brewing a Quart of Concentrate

Place tea dripper globe onto the drip stand or directly onto your jar. Use caution if you do not use a drip stand as it will not be as stable.

If using the drip stand, place an open quart jar in the stand, under the dripper, to catch the tea.

Measure out 35 grams of tea(or just use 1 full essential bag) and pour into your tea dripper.

Heat 28 ounces of water to the appropriate temperature for the tea you are going to brew.

Green/Oolong: 180F, Black: 208F, Herbal/Tisane: 212F

Pour 28oz of hot water into the dripper. Set a timer for the prescribed time on the bag. Stir and place the lid on top. Stir a few times through steeping process.

When the time is up, press the grey tab at the bottom of the dripper to release the tea, holding until fully strained. Let cool, and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
