As a starting point, refer to our Brew Guide for making 300ml tea. Use the same:
- Water temp
- Tea to water ratio (e.g. if 5g is required for 300ml, use 50g for 3L)
- 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.
Here are some 3L recipes for a few teas we’ve batched.
