CUP AND KETTLE'S GUIDE TO BREWING THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA

Black/Maté:  Water just to boiling - pour over leaves - steep 3-5 mins

Oolong: Water to 180 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 mins

Green: Water to 180 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 mins

White: Water to 180 degrees - pour over leaves - steep 2-3 mins

Herbal: Water just to boiling - pour over leaves - steep 5-7 mins


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)

You will find many differences in recommended temps and times for steeping tea

Steeping tea longer does not make it stronger. Steeping longer can result in a bitter cup of tea

For iced tea, brew double strength (2 tsp/cup), cool, pour over equal amount of cold water/ice
