Things required in the process 

Loose-leaf tea: You can opt for our Nepali loose-leaf tea. 

A teapot or saucepan where you will prepare your tea. 

Tea infuser: Using a tea infuser will help you make the tea effortlessly. However, there is no hard and fast rule here; you can also prepare it without an infuser. 

Electric kettle: You can use an electric tea kettle to warm up the water. 

Tea scoop: Though it is optional, using a tea scoop will help you measure the right amount of tea leaves. 

Warm the water

You can use a kettle to warm the water, or you can use a saucepan as well. The standard temperature required for brewing tea is between 140 degrees and 212 degrees, depending on the tea variety, whether it is black or herbal.

The water temperature should be right to prepare your loose-leaf tea. Do not make it too hot; otherwise, there is a chance of burning the tea leaves. Similarly, do not make it too cold, as it would give your tea a bland taste. The right water temperature will make your tea tasty. 

Tea leaves measurement 

Measuring your tea leaves is an integral part of tea preparation. We suggest you take one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per 8 ounces (240ml) of water. This is not a strict rule. You can add more leaves if you want a strong flavor. As you keep making it for a few days, gradually, you will have a better idea about exactly how much tea leaves should be added to the recommended amount of water to achieve the desired taste. 

Soaking of your tea

We recommend pouring hot water over the tea leaves instead of putting them in the water. This will help the leaves soak properly and add to the taste. 

The length of soaking time will depend on the variety of tea. Black loose leaf tea should be kept in the water for 3 to 4 minutes. You can adjust a timer on your phone or clock to check the recommended time while you brew the tea. 

Separate your tea leaves and serve it hot

As you finish soaking the tea, use a strainer to remove the leaves from the pot and transfer it to your cup. It is advised to transfer the tea to a different pot other than the pan where you prepared it. This will prevent the tea getting extra strong. 

These tips and techniques will surely help you prepare your Nepali loose-leaf tea to get the ultimate flavor. Buy Loose-Leaf Teas from our site,, to enjoy the rich taste of Nepal tea
