Frequently Asked Questions
Looking for some pointers? Here's where we start:
Heat your water to just about 65–75°C (approximately 150–165°F). Don't burn yourself!
Use about one teaspoon (or one teabag, if you're using them) for every 8oz (approximately 1 cup or 225ml) of water. You can always add more tea or less water if you like it stronger.
Steep. After about 1 or 2 minutes, take your tea out. This is the time to add sugar, if you want.
Once your tea's cool enough to drink, drink up!
Many green teas (especially higher quality, unflavoured, or on a sencha base) can be used more than once for more than one infusion. You may notice that the flavour is deeper on the earlier infusions, however.
Of course! While we love our customers that order by phone and email, Say Tea is primarily a neighbourhood store, and we make sure that all our stock is available to you at our physical location.

We know that when you sit down for a good cup of tea or coffee, the last thing you want to worry about is whether any worrisome chemicals might be floating around in your cup. When we label our tea or coffee organic, it means that everything in it — from the tea leaf to the coffee bean to any added ingredients or flavouring on top — is grown and processed organically.
