Cup and Kettle's Guide to Brewing the Perfect Cup of Tea:
  • Black:  Water just to boiling - pour over leaves - steep 3-5 minutes
  • Oolong: Water to 180/185 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 minutes
  • Green: Water to 180/185 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 minutes
  • White: Water to 180 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 minutes
  • Herbal: Water just to boiling - pour over leaves - steep 5-7 minutes
NOTE1: Use approx. 1 tsp. of leaves per 6-8 ounces of water (it can be up to 2 tsp. for herbal and white teas due to less density)
NOTE2: You will find many differences in recommended temps and times for steeping tea
NOTE3: Steeping tea longer does not make it stronger. Steeping longer can result in a bitter cup of tea
NOTE4: For iced tea, brew double strength (2 tsp/cup), cool, pour over equal amount of cold water/ice
