More about time


Tea time


Tea aficionados know that timing is everything. Getting the steeping time right is an essential part of the brewing process: brew a green tea too long and it can leave a bitter taste in your mouth; pour a delicate white tea too early and those beautifully subtle characters may be lost on you.

But what tea needs what time? To make it easy for you, all teas sold on The Tea Makers of London’s online store come with brewing guidance. To prepare the perfect brew, simply check the recommended steeping time for your tea, flip the right hourglass for your style of luxury loose-leaf and wait for the sand to run down. 

Materials


Stainless steel and glass with coloured sand.
