There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter. If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times.
Below are general steeping instructions. For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle. When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

I got this for my tea loving husband for Christmas. He absolutely loves the dragonfly design. I bought this pot because it is super badass looking. It came with a whole matching set the base and cups, a tea basket. the green color is really nice as well. Our tea stays hot, this tea pot we will enjoy forever!
