How to get started:

1. Fill your pot with water and make sure you have an open strainer or a muslin bag on hand to allow your ingredients the chance to steep properly for the best taste.

2. Depending on your choice of infusion, we recommend the following:

  • Flower or leaf: Steep 1-2 teaspoon in 8 oz. of water, covered for 5 mins
  • Seed, bark or root: Steep 1-2 teaspoon in 8 oz. of water, covered for 15-20 mins
  • Fruit or spices: Depending on the fruit, steep 1-3 teaspoon in 8 oz. of water, covered for 5- 10 mins.

3. Depending on your combination and preference, if you decide to sweeten the pot, consider a pinch of raw sugar or local honey.

4. If you’re using citrus or peelings, squeeze them into your pitcher before infusing them to ensure optimal zesty flavor.

5. Once your infusion is done steeping, pour it over ice for the perfect, refreshing beverage. Enjoy with these favorite Walkers offerings:
