How to make
TeaPop

Add a little fizz
to your tea for
celebratory sipping.

When two of our favourites come together – it's just magic.

Some days call for sweatpants, some days call for jeans. On days we're feeling fancy, we reach for a glass of sparkling tea. Just open a bottle of fizz – from sparkling water to sparkling wine or Champagne – and introduce it to your favourite fruity tea. For the ultimate experience, top your TeaPop with chunks of mouthwatering fresh fruit.

Of course, there's a little more to it than that – but not much more. For details on measurements & more, follow our visual how-to guide. Cheers!

What you’ll
need

Step 1

Measure your tea

Measure your favourite tea like a pro by using the DAVIDsTEA Perfect Spoon – a stainless steel spoon designed to help measure your loose leaf tea correctly. Just scoop 4 Perfect Spoons (approx. 3 tablespoons) of your loose leaf tea into the DAVIDsTEA 16 oz Steeper.

Step 2

Pour in hot water

With your loose leaf ready to go, it's now time to fill your Steeper with 4 oz of near-boiling water from a kettle. Water temperature is one of the most important variables in steeping a consistently delicious cup of tea. So how hot should your water be? To make sure you get the best results, follow this simple steeping guide.

Step 3

Let it steep

This is where the magic happens.
Here's where you want to set a timer to give your tea the time it needs to release all of its wonderful flavours and aromas.

Step 4

Dispense tea over ice

Fill your mug with ice, rest the Steeper right on top and watch as your infused tea pours out like magic through the easy-release valve. The filter will strain your tea directly into your ice-filled cup while keeping the tea leaves in the infuser. And when you're done, the valve closes automatically.

Step 5

Top with fizz

Grab a bottle of sparkling water, sparkling wine or Champagne, pop it open and top up your mug with fizz. Not only does TeaPop look AMAZING – the taste is out of this world.
