How to Steep Loose Leaf Tea
Begin with the right amount of loose leaf tea. Too much leaf will make the tea bitter and too little leaf will have no flavor. Always steep your tea according to the directions.
The temperature of the water is vital. Black teas require boiling water but green, white and oolong usually require a water temperature of 170°-180° degrees.
Timing is very important. Black Teas: steep 4-5 minutes
Green Teas: steep 2 minutes
Rooibos Tea: steep 5 minutes
Fruit Tisane: steep 5 minutes
Herbal Teas: steep 5-7 minutes.
Enjoy your cuppa!
