    A WORD ABOUT WATER
    The quality of water will affect the way the tea leaf components dissolve into the beverage, and therefore its quality. Tap water is highly chlorinated and although it's convenient, it may not be the best water to brew your tea with. We recommend experimenting with bottled spring water to yield more satisfactory results.
