Brewing Instructions for Assam Black Tea, TGFOP, Organic:

1. Preparing the Tea Leaves:
- Begin by measuring approximately one teaspoon of the Assam Black Tea leaves for each cup of tea you wish to brew.
- Place the measured tea leaves into a tea infuser or a tea-filled accessory designed for individual cups or mugs.

2. Boiling Water:
- Heat water in a kettle until it reaches a rolling boil. The ideal water temperature for brewing Assam Black Tea is about 212°F (100°C).
- Once the water has boiled, let it sit for about 30 seconds to slightly cool. This prevents the tea leaves from burning, which can affect the taste.

3. Steeping the Tea:
- Place the tea infuser with the Assam tea leaves into your cup or mug.
- Carefully pour the hot water over the tea leaves, ensuring they are fully submerged.
- Depending on your taste preference, allow the tea to steep for 3 to 5 minutes. A shorter steeping time will yield a lighter, less robust flavor, while a longer steeping time will enhance the tea's full-bodied nature and depth.
- While the tea is steeping, resist the urge to stir or squeeze the tea leaves, as this can release bitterness.

4. Enjoying Your Tea:
- Remove the infuser or tea accessory from the cup once the tea has steeped to your liking.
- If desired, add milk, sugar, or lemon to taste. However, many tea enthusiasts prefer to enjoy Assam Black Tea in its pure form to appreciate its rich and bold flavors.
- Savor your freshly brewed cup of Assam Black Tea, TGFOP, and enjoy the flavor journey it offers.

Remember, the key to a perfect cup of Assam Black Tea lies in the quality of the water, the right temperature, and the steeping time. Adjust these elements to your preference to create your ideal tea experience.
