Brimming with questions?
How do you prepare a Tea Drop?
Get ready – this is where the magic happens. To make a hot tea with a Tea Drop:
- Choose your tea strength: Use one Tea Drop per one 8-12 oz cup of boiling water. Add more water for a lighter tea; add less for a strong brew.
- Drop and stir: Use a spoon to mix the tea for 5-10 seconds. Let the tea sit and dissolve for 30 seconds.
That’s the basics, but it’s really only the beginning. Tea Drops are designed to make it easy to prepare a huge range of drinks that would otherwise be too tough or time consuming to make at home. Lattes, milk teas, boba drinks, iced teas – they’re all quick and convenient to make with Tea Drops.

Do Tea Drops dissolve completely?
Unlike instant tea, Tea Drops are made with genuine tea leaves, delicately ground and pressed into convenient little drops. That means they won’t dissolve completely, like heavily processed instant tea would.
Just as you might notice some fruit pulp left over at the end of a delicious organic smoothie, you’ll notice some tea leaves and sediment at the bottom of your teacup.
They’re packed full of antioxidants (and tasty, too), so we recommend that you consume them. But if it’s not for you, you can strain them, or use a Tea Drops tea press to remove them. Or do as the Chinese and read your future in the leaves! (Hint: It’s going to involve some excellent cups of tea.)
How do I control the strength of my tea with Tea Drops?
Tea Drops are designed to let you customize every part of your tea experience – which includes the strength of your drink! It all depends on how much water you add to your cup; add more water for a subtle taste, or less for a flavor that really packs a punch.
