How to Use the Tea Forté Café Cup

1 Min Read | August 15, 2018

If you’ve ever ordered hot tea on a cruise, in a spa or at an upscale restaurant, perhaps it’s been served to you in an inventive porcelain cup with a small pinhole in its cover, revealing a delicate paper leaf attached to a pyramid infuser inside. If so, you’ve enjoyed a Tea Forte blend served in the Tea Forte Cafe Cup, and now, you can own one -- or six -- to call yours.

With a custom lid to keep tea hot and allow the leaf of the iconic infuser to peek through, the Cafe Cup steeps up to 8 oz. of your tea of choice. To use it, simply place your pyramid infuser in the center, pour one cup of hot water over it, and put the cover in place, letting the green paper leaf snake its way through the top for effect.

Let green or white tea steep for three minutes, let black or oolong tea steep for three to five minutes, and allow up to five minutes or longer for an herbal tisane to fully infuse. When the steep is complete, remove the cover and place it underneath your cup to act as a saucer. Now, place the infuser aside and enjoy an aromatic cup of Tea Forte.
