1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 5-7 minutes.
For loose leaf iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
We too were introduced to Tea Forte on a cruise ship. Love the pyramids! Ordered a sampler chest after the cruise and my husband discovered the Blueberry Merlot. I thought the event box sounded like so much tea when I first purchased it. Little did I realize I would be coming back to order more so soon.
Thank you, Newark Museum, for your then Christmas outlay of products where I splurged on Xmas gifts for friends and me, especially the tea - Tea Forte! As I write my poetry, I mellow out and sip my organic Tea Forte, whichever flavor of the day, and OH! the Blueberry Merlot....
I have been buying tea from Tea Forte for years and my mom before me. Neither one of us can drink the blueberry merlot. It says a touch of sage but that is all we can taste. The day we received it we instantly made our cups; such a disappointment. I sent a email that day to customer service and did not hear back.
