An Adventure in Tea

So today's post is a little out of the ordinary! When my friend Courtney was visiting, we went in to the cutest little tea shop near my house and sampled some tea. Well, I have been craving it ever since that day! (Silly me for not buying any the day we went!) I went and bought some loose leaf tea, and an infuser. I also got some for my Grandma for Christmas!! I think this is a present that she will absolutely LOVE! (Grandma, if you are reading this...Merry Christmas!!)

Now, here is where I need your help! I have never brewed loose leaf tea, nor have I ever used an infuser! Yep, I was a tea bag girl before this. I would love to know your tips and tricks for brewing loose leaf tea! I have heard the adage, water into tea, never tea in water. Is that true?  Here are the varieties I bought and the descriptions about them!

Carmella: Black tea, butterscotch chips, calendula, and sunflower petals. Caramel and Vanilla flavors.

Winter Spice: Black tea, orange, mandarin, cinnamon pieces, clove, lime and blackberry leaves

Green Granny Apple: Sencha green tea, natural dried apple pieces, and natural flavors

So, give me all of your wisdom about loose leaf tea! I can't wait to hear your tips and tricks! You can leave a comment on my Facebook Fan Page, the comments below, or my twitter! Hope to hear from you soon!
