3. Prepare Your Water
Water matters. The colder and cleaner the water, the better your TEATAZE will taste. Since oxygen helps draw out flavors in tea, we recommend using filtered water. If you use tap water, we recommend running the tap for about 30 seconds before filling your kettle. If you prefer to use bottled water, simply shake the bottle for 30 seconds or so before heating.
How you prepare your water can have dramatic effects on different types of teas. Whatever your TEATAZE preference, make sure not to overboil the water, as that reduces oxygen and can make the tea taste flat.
(For optimal TEATAZE flavor, we recommend using a kettle rather than a microwave to boil your water)
