Batch Brewing

As a starting point, refer to our Brew Guide for making 300ml tea. Use the same:

  1. Water temp
  2. Tea to water ratio (e.g. if 5g is required for 300ml, use 50g for 3L)
  3. Then start with using the same brew times, but taste test first – on large batches, some teas need longer times than in small teapots

Brew in a soup pot, once you’re happy with the strength, strain through a large strainer or muslin cloth, decant into the electric urn and keep the urn at the same temperature as you’ve brewed the tea.
