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 am long time tea aficionado. This is my first time ordering from this company. I am very pleased with my order. It came very fast, all tea is very fresh and high quality. Nice packaging too. I ordered Rooibos, decaf Earl Grey and Hibiscus. Love all 3 of them. Highly recommend this company to all tea lovers out there.
Service from this vendor was great: fast, and product was well packed. Product packaging is well designed and sturdy. This is my first taste of this herb. I found it brews a beautifully colored liquid with a mild aroma and taste. At times it reminded me of root beer without the sweetness, of course. The tea has no bite at all... I like it very much. My daughters are big fans of this tea. I’m glad I followed up on their recommendation... this herbal tea will certainly be a part of our gatherings.
