Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you source your coffee and tea from?
We source coffee and teas from small, family-owned farms; specifically working to find women-owned farms, fair trade, and organic options.
What ingredients do you use?
The Coffee Grl and UniTea contain no additives or flavors. They are all natural from the source. All of our teas are packaged as loose tea leaves, organic and fair trade.
Please refer to the labeling on other items, like the Greyston Brownies, and FLYGRL products.
How do I make tea with loose tea leaves?
The general rule of thumb for tea, is that you should use 1 teaspoon of loose tea for every 8 oz. cup of water.
Steeping times vary on the tea:
EmpowerMint Tea: herbal tea, no caffeine, let steep 6-7 minutes.
EqualiTea: green tea, light caffeine, let steep 1-3 minutes.
CommuniTea: black tea, caffeine, let steep 5 minutes.
How much coffee should I use?
The general rule of thumb is that one scoop of ground coffee (about 2 tablespoons) for an 6 oz. cup of water. Again, it varies on your preference for a weaker or stronger brew, and it also varies on the grind setting. For example, a finer grind for espresso and a coarser grind for French press.
