Skeins on Main is thrilled to bring you Octavia Tea.

Octavia Tea has set the standard for quality, delivering the freshest, best-tasting teas on earth, choosing only the best from the world’s top gardens. Each tea, spice, herb, flower, essential oil and flavor essence is hand-selected based on their rigorous demands for health benefits, freshness, flavor, quality and purity.

Each traditional tea has a unique flavor and style that reflects its vintage, origin, plant cultivar, and artisanal method of manufacture. Octavia Tea blends are handcrafted in small batches to ensure that you get the freshest product possible. We are also proud to add that Octavia Tea is a socially and environmentally conscious company focusing on natural and USDA certified organic ingredients.

Samples are packaged in resealable foil bags that contain approximately 6 teaspoons (2 tablespoons) of loose-leaf tea. One sample brews 2-6 cups depending on desired strength.

Brewing Instructions: 

  1. Add tea leaves to a teapot, fill-your-own tea bag or infuser basket. (See our Tea Accessories section for our recommendations!)
  2. Use 1 to 3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) of leaves per cup (8 oz) of water. Adjust to taste.
  3. Bring fresh, cold water to a rolling boil, allow it to cool slightly, then pour water over tea leaves and cover.
  4. Infuse (steep) leaves 2-5 minutes; 3½ minutes is a good average that works well for most tea types. Do not oversteep or tea may become bitter. If you prefer strong tea, simply use more leaves.
  5. Remove bag or infuser from water or strain leaves. Enjoy!
