Steeping The Perfect Pot Of Tea.

September 09, 2012

Steeping time and temperature varies by tea type. Remember, it is easy to over steep and over cook your delicate tea leaves. Here is a good chart to follow:

Green Tea: Steep for 2 minutes at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Black Tea: Steep for 3 minutes at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

White Tea: Steep for 2-3 minutes at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dark Oolong: Steep for 3-4 minutes at 195 degrees Fahrenheit.

Green Oolong: Steep for 2-3 minutes at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

Herbal Infusions: Steep for 4-5 minutes at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
