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.

What a welcome surprise every time an herbal tea has all of the flavor and potency of an old fashioned cuppa. Not to mention a little something extra. The secret to this tea – often cited as a tea-lover's favorite? Does what it says on the tin. Labeled Bright Orange; this is a spirited tea with an unquenchable (but not overpowering) basin of citric orange flavor.
This unique blood-orange tisanal can be enjoyed in the afternoon along with a few minute's quiet break or added to one's normal daily tea time. Sweet but tangy enough to be a more “serious” fruit tea; Bright Orange is deceptively delicious.
Fruit tea calls to mind specific times and locations. It's the sort of aromatic experience that locks itself in memory and insists on only returning at the nostalgic whiff of the particular tea present at the time of the memory. For this reason; along with the delicate but persistent sweetness of papaya and rosehip mixed in with blood orange; Bright Orange is a wonderful gift tea.
Citrus and vitamin C are the body's natural immune system boosters. Improve your natural defenses against infection and even the common cold by adding Bright Orange to your roster of teas. Full bodied with a manageable flavor, this tangily sweet fruit tea is sure to be a favorite!
Base leaf: Fruit and herbs no tea leaves.
Health properties: Super Vitamin C.

This is my first time buying from Good Life Tea shop. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
I enjoy the delicate flavor of this tea.
I was pleasantly surprised opening the package, the presentation was exquisite, from the white box to the individual shiny bags with loose tea. Rob sent a hand written thank you note on the packing slip which I thought was a nice touch. He also included three samples.
Very satisfied and will buy again from Good Life Tea.
Great bright flavor. Good for afternoons pick up.
Great packaging! Very cute and I love that they included some extra samples of other teas! Thanks!
My daughter loves this tea and we now brew it with the cinnamon spice tea. YUMMY! Such a fall flavor. Enjoy.
